This course continues the study of Christian doctrines begun in Theological Foundations I (TS211). It seeks to make plain the outworking of God’s redemptive purposes in the light of sin and its impact upon the world. The outworking of God’s redemptive purposes will be considered according to the following order of doctrinal topics: the person and offices of Christ (Christology), Salvation (Soteriology), the Church (Ecclesiology), and the Last Things (Eschatology).

This course seeks to explicate the doctrines of Christ, salvation, the church, and the last things, (a) on the basis of Scripture; (b) in the context of churchly teaching in the past and present; (c) with an attitude of reverence to God; (d) with an eye to Christian worship and obedience.

Horton views this volume as "doctrine that can be preached, experienced, and lived, as well as understood, clarified, and articulated.” Features of this volume include: (1) a brief synopsis of biblical passages that inform a particular doctrine; (2) surveys of past and current theologies with contemporary emphasis on exegetical, philosophical, practical, and theological questions; (3) substantial interaction with various Christian movements within the Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox traditions, as well as the hermeneutical issues raised by postmodernity; and (4) practical tools for learning such as charts, sidebars, questions for discussion, and an extensive bibliography, divided into different entry levels and topics.
