New Studies in Dogmatics—A New 15-Volume Series in Constructive Theology

Categories Theology

Today Zondervan announced a major 15-volume project in constructive theology. The series is called New Studies in Dogmatics and is edited by Michael Allen (Knox Theological Seminary) and Scott R. Swain (Reformed Theological Seminary).

The volumes will explore vital theological topics of Christian doctrine, expressing their biblical, creedal, and confessional shape. The volumes will seek a constructive theology that—unlike much modern theology—does not downplay the traditions of the church, but embraces and builds upon Christianity’s historic professions. Authors will reexamine church doctrine by beginning with the foundations laid in the creeds, councils, and confessions and expounded by its most trusted teachers (such as the early church fathers, medieval doctors, and Protestant Reformers).

“We are excited about the New Studies in Dogmatics series,” Allen says, “because we believe that the way to renewal is through retrieval of our catholic and Reformational heritage.”
