Protestant is shorthand for a spreading family tree of church and theological traditions. Whether you are an insider to one tradition, a hybrid of two or three, or-as many Christians today-an outsider to all, Exploring Protestant Traditions is a richly informative field guide to eight prominent Protestant theological traditions: Lutheran, Anabaptist, Reformed, Anglican, Baptist, Wesleyan, Dispensational and Pentecostal. Clearly and evenhandedly, David Buschart traces their histories, explains their interpretive approaches to Scripture and highlights their key beliefs. Readers will gain a sense of what it is to believe and worship as a part of these traditions, who their heroes are and where their theological accents are placed.

W. David Buschart (PhD, Drew University) is associate dean and professor of theology and historical studies at Denver Seminary. He is the author of Exploring Protestant Traditions: An Invitation to Theological Hospitality and is coeditor of and a contributor to Scholarship, Sacraments, and Service. He has published a number of articles, essays and book chapters and is a member of the American Academy of Religion and the Evangelical Theological Society. Buschart served in the theology department at Canadian Theological Seminary from 1988 to 1998 and also served as acting dean of the faculty for one year. He was a founding member of the Research Science and Ethics Advisory Committee at Wascana Rehabilitation Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan and is also the founder of Credo Consulting, a theological consulting firm. He and his wife Nancy are active members of the Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church in Greenwood Village, Colorado.
