Synopsis

These audio lectures are a unique learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook’s direct narration of a book’s text, The Essentials of Christian Thought: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

Christians disagree on doctrine, politics, church government, certain moral questions - just about everything under the sun, it can seem. Yet a unity remains, centered around a core outlook on God and the world that is common to all believers. Or at least, such an outlook should unite Christians of all theological and church backgrounds. However, alternate visions of reality often infect and corrupt Christians' thinking.

In The Essentials of Christian Thought: Audio Lectures eminent theologian and church historian Roger Olson outlines the basic perspective on the world that all Christians, regardless of the place and time in which they were born, have historically held. This underlying metaphysic accords with all orthodox theologies, whether Calvinist or Arminian, Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, or Protestant, but it separates Christianity from other religious and secular perspectives. It is, quite simply, the essential requirement of a Christian view of the world.

The Essentials of Christian Thought: Audio Lectures will prompt viewers to more consciously appropriate the core of their faith, guarding against ideas that subtly but necessarily invite compromise.

The Essentials of Christian Thought: Audio Lectures is part of the Zondervan Beyond the Basics Series, which is dedicated to bringing expert teaching from world's best biblical scholars and theologians directly to interested learners. The Essentials of Christian Thought: Audio Lectures offers the chance to learn about the necessary principles of a Christian outlook on the world from one of today's premier theologians.
