Description: Theology is the knowledge of God; but unlike other types of information, which simply provide a broader understanding of a topic, theology is intimately connected to how we exist and conduct ourselves in the world. With this in mind, it's important that we, as Christians, understand our beliefs in order to value their impact and practice them effectively. Discovering Our Christian Faith is an introduction to Christian theology. It explores the Bible's amazing story, beginning with creation and ending with the return of Christ. Dr. Samuel Powell presents the leading doctrines of Christianity and explores how they have been shaped throughout the centuries. With thorough examination and academic scholarship, he outlines the creedal statements of Wesleyan-holiness churches and explores the importance of eschatology in every doctrine, seeking to maintain the coherence and systematic character of Christian belief. In addition to a section on ethical dimensions of the doctrines discussed, each chapter includes a hymn by John and/or Charles Wesley that expresses the theme of the chapter. Discovering Our Christian Faith offers students, scholars, pastors, and teachers the opportunity to engage and unite their faith and intellect in an act of worship. With challenging insight and enriching evidence, it brings readers face to face with the beginning and end of our being by seeking to understand and encounter the knowledge of God.
