A Concise Systematic Theology of the Church

The word church evokes different thoughts from different people--some think of a group of people who meet together on Sunday mornings; some think of a building; and others think of a bigger, global movement. In this installment of the Short Studies in Systematic Theology series, Gregg R. Allison offers an overview of specific doctrines and practices of different churches and denominations as each finds its unique expression through its identity, leadership, government, sacraments, ministries, and future. For each of these topics, Allison lays out the common practice among local church communities ("mere ecclesiology") and examines how they diverge from one another in their expression ("more ecclesiology"). Through this systematic primer, readers will come away knowing not only how various churches differ, but also how they're ultimately united as the body of Christ and the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Gregg R. Allison (PhD, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is professor of Christian theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is secretary of the Evangelical Theological Society, a book review editor for the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, an elder at Sojourn Community Church, and a theological strategist for Harbor Network. Allison has taught at several colleges and seminaries, including Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, and is the author of numerous books, including Historical TheologySojourners and Strangers; and Roman Catholic Theology and Practice.
