Why Does Michael Bird Center His Systematic Theology Around The "Evangel"?
Next Tuesday Michael Bird's highly anticipated new book Evangelical Theology hits stores. What's unique about this systematic theology volume is that it's written by a New Testament Bible scholar who places the "evangel" at the center of his theology.
Here's a sneak peek of the new book and the answer to our question, Why does Michael Bird place the “evangel” at the center of his new book of systematic theology:
I unabashedly believe that the good news of Jesus Christ is the most important doctrine of them all.
In terms of Christian theology, the gospel is the glue between doctrine, experience, mission, and practice. I submit that an authentic evangelical theology should be a working out of the gospel in the various loci of Christian theology (i.e., the topics in theology like the nature of God, the person and work of Christ, the church, last things, etc.) and then be applied to the sphere of daily Christian life and the offices of Christian leaders.
