This is the parent page linking to a series of essays I have written on core Christian convictions. These essays grew out of a series of sermons at Shalom Mennonite Congregation and lectures to my Introduction to Theology class at Eastern Mennonite University. An expanded version has been published as a book: Theology as if Jesus Matters: An Introduction to Christianity’s Main Convictions (Cascadia Publishing House, 2009—the web page is here. ; here is a link to a pdf of the entire book). The essays linked to below are introductory and meant to be accessible to a wide audience.
4. The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit
12. The Doctrine of Eschatology
13. The Doctrine of the Christian Life
Here are the original sermons these chapters are drawn from.
