  2. “The Meaning of Revelation”
  3. “The Authority of Scripture”
  4. “The Triune God”
  5. “The Good Creation”
  6. “The Providence of God and the Mystery of Evil”
  7. “Humanity as Creature, Sinner, and New Being in Christ”
  8. “The Person and Work of Jesus Christ”
    1. “Part 2”

  10. “The Holy Spirit and the Christian Life”
  11. ‘The New Community”
  12. “Proclamation, Sacraments, and Ministry”
  13. “The Finality of Jesus Christ and Religious Pluralism”
    1. “Views on Salvation”

  15. Appendix A: “Natural Theology: A Dialogue”
  16. Appendix B: “The Resurrection: A Dialogue”
  17. Appendix C: “Political Theology”

In the first 12 or so sessions, it was basically a Q & A format, where I’d present a series of questions and we’d get into a dialogue or conversation with the group.

But once we got to chapter 13, I started implementing (from the wise suggestion of another person) mandatory written summaries of each members’ thoughts.  It’s a particularly good habit to get into when you write down your thoughts; you get a chance to reflect, refine, and revise upon what’s going on in your mind.

I believe that writing is a form of (spiritual) discipline that groups like this, and even church small groups and the like, will greatly benefit from.

    This is one of the finest general books on systematic theology on the market. I am only marginally biased as he was my teacher on the subject in 1996.
