Theology in Seven Sentences

Forthcoming: An invitation to enter the entire subject of theology by reading seven of its most important, evocative, and influential sentences. Each chapter puts a key sentence in its doctrinal context and shows how it contributes to the whole.

A great idea? Yes! And of the many candidates for inclusion, these are the winning sentences:

Athanasius: God became man so that man could become god.
Augustine: Our heart is restless until it rests in you.
Thomas Aquinas: Grace does not destroy nature, but perfects it.
Catherine of Siena: A soul rises up, restless with tremendous desire for God’s honor and the salvation of souls.
Martin Luther: Sin boldly.
John Calvin: Our whole salvation and all its parts are comprehended in Christ.
Charles Wesley: Oh for a thousand tongues to sing my great redeemer’s praise.

I’m drastically late finishing up this little book; it will be a late entry in IVP’s fun Introductions in Seven Sentences collection.
