What Christians Belive offers a general theology that will serve every group of evangelical Christians. This theology affirms the unity of the various confessions as well as the validity of diversity in matters of secondary importance. The traditional way of doing theology among evangelicals has been to set forth a rigid theological system and vigorously defend that system as the revealed truth. That approach tends to emphasize the points of disagreement among Christians instead of beliefs held in common. What Christians believe takes the approach of contextualized theology--that is, with the recognition that all systems of theological thought reflect the particular cultural grid in which they were originally written. Thus theology is a discipline that reflect on the truth. Therefore this book offers dual perspectives on each theological concept.
