Church Doctrine, Volume 1
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Here is a clear, learned, accessible, and profoundly courageous volume that directs the reader to the heart of the faith. In deep conversation with the past and present, McGlasson has his eye on the future and offers here the necessary provisions for the church to move forward in faithfulness and good cheer."
--Thomas W. Currie, Union Presbyterian Seminary
"In a wonderfully lucid way, Paul McGlasson makes a convincing case for the vital importance of Christian doctrine. While he listens carefully to the tradition, McGlasson also takes care to speak to pastors and teachers in today's church. He notes the follies and inconsistencies of voices on the left and right and instead charts a creative and independent path that seeks genuine renewal of faith and life."
--Mark Tranvik, Augsburg Center for Faith and Living
"Church Doctrine promises to be a major contribution to theological synthesis for our day. His opening volume on canon is a unique and wonderful down payment that examines the way Scripture and its proclamation frame the entire context of our theology and life in Christ. McGlasson writes concretely, pertinently, and practically, applying his vast learning judiciously and with a perfect pitch. Catholic in scope, robustly Protestant in sensibility, this is a gift to the whole church."
--Ephraim Radner, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto
"For over a thousand years the dogmatic task--the believing mind's quest to understand how the Christian faith hangs together in all of its complexity--has been the summit of the Christian intellectual life. Few now attempt it, but Paul McGlasson offers here the first volume of a full dogmatics, clearly Reformed in outlook, yet informed by the faith of the wider church. May his effort rouse other Christians to join him in the task."
--Bruce D. Marshall, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
