It is the job of all believers not just theologians to serve God by discerning what is true about the crucial issues of life Our task is to learn about God Our privilege is to love God passionately with our minds Clearly then spiritual life must have theology as one of its ingredients but this by itself will not guarantee a vibrant spiritual life Rather evangelicals must link a theological experience and an experiential theology Knowing and loving God are both necessary David Clark explains how evangelical systematic theology is structured and how this discipline assists believers in understanding God fully and worshipping him completely To do so he uses strategies of analytical philosophy to reveal the nature purposes methods and limits of evangelical systematic theology He attempts to speak both to and for evangelicals with the goal of showing how a reasonable articulate and credible evangelical theology can proceed Other questions are raised while trying to define evangelical systematic theology Is systematic theology a legitimate intellectual enterprise? How does theology build upon the teachings of the Bible? How can evangelical theologians in different cultures assist each other? How does theology contribute to transforming society? What does the existence of other religions mean for evangelical theology? How does systematic theology relate to other intellectual disciplines? How does it connect with the life of the church? What are the purposes and the final goal of systematic theology? The answers to these questions are not ends in themselves but assist believers in attaining the goal of knowing and loving God Asserting that evangelical systematic theology is the science by which evangelical believers learn of God Clark claims that the insights of apparently contradictory viewpoints can and should be drawn together He works past the false dilemmas imprecision overstatement inferences and generalizations that often cloud theological discussion and arrives at clear definitions precise distinctions careful analysis and modest conclusions Clark argues that evangelical systematic theology is rooted in the Bible and focused on Christ Good theology provides vision fosters wisdom and nurtures covenantal relationship with God Good theology leads to knowing and loving God

    Clark is penetrating in his analysis of the intersection of theology philosophy and cultural context The book is fairly technical in places so readers with background in theology andor philosophy will benefit most
