Theological Institutes

Theological Institutes

2 vols.

by Richard Watson

Introduction by Ben Witherington III

Theological Institutes was a critical landmark in the development of Methodist doctrine. Originally published in 1823 in four volumes, Watson's work was the first attempt to systematize John Wesley's theology. Influencing and guiding the later systematic theological work for Methodist theology, Watson's Institutes was the main Methodist textbook for systematic theological studies and remained a primary text for over 50 years after his death.

Introduction to Dogmatic Theology

Introduction to Dogmatic Theology

by E. A. Litton

Introduction to Dogmatic Theology presents a rare examination of dogmatic theology from an Anglican perspective. Originally published in 1882, Litton’s work holds to the essentials of evangelical faith, while drawing heavily from St. Augustine and the Reformers. Primarily a dogmatic theology, Litton’s work also serves indirectly as a commentary on the 39 Articles, yet is free from the limitations a true commentary would present. It deals with subjects such as faith, Christian theism, the state of man, angels, and the person and work of Christ. Readers will find this book a comprehensive and balanced treatment of Anglican dogmatic theology.

Plain Theology for Plain People

Plain Theology for Plain People

by Charles Octavius Boothe

Introduction by Walter R. Strickland II

In this handbook first published in 1890, Charles Octavius Boothe simply and beautifully lays out the basics of theology for common people. “Before the charge ‘know thyself,’” Boothe wrote, “ought to come the far greater charge, ‘know thy God.’” He brought the heights of academic theology down to everyday language, and he helps us do the same today. Plain Theology for Plain People shows that evangelicalism needs the wisdom and experience of African American Christians.
