How can evangelical theology profit from a century's discussions of theological method without losing its distinctive character? This series brings together a varied group of evangelical theologians to consider this question and to press each other to re-consider it. In both provocative presentations and critical public interactions, six distinctive theologians work through each others suggestions as to how evangelical theology ought to be composed. Lectures include:

  • Evangelical Theological Method: The State of the Art - Alister McGrath
  • Engaging the Great Tradition: Evangelical Theology and the Historical Enterprise - Alister McGrath
  • The Voice & the Actor: Dramatic Proposal About the Ministry & Minstrelsy of Theology - Kevin Vanhoozer
  • Confessions of a Penitent, Parasite and Prophet - Stephen Williams
  • Beyond Foundationalism: Theological Method and the Postmodern Context - Stanley Grenz
  • Evangelical Theology Should be Evangelical - John Stackhouse
  • Expanding the Boundaries : French Catholic Charismatic Renewal & Evangelical Theological Method - Mareque Steele
  • Knowing God: The Significance of J.I. Packer for Evangelical Theology and Spirituality - Alister McGrath
