Known as the father of modern theology, Schleiermacher was equally at home in the theological systems of Protestant orthodoxy and the new world of thought shaped by the historical and natural sciences and German philosophy.
This ease in different theological frameworks is clearly shown in his discussion of the wide range of themes in dogmatics. This volume outlines Schleiermacher's views on every major doctrine of orthodox Christianity.
This classic work in systematic theology remains an indispensable volume to any student of theology, and especially for those who want to understand liberal theology.
This Cornerstones edition has a new preface written by Professor Paul T.
Nimmo, a well-known expert on Schleiermacher and his contribution to theology.
