The Protestant Faith

Excerpt

For some years it was my privilege to teach a course on the Protestant Faith in one of our state universities. My students came from the most diverse backgrounds. Every shade of belief and unbelief was represented. But one characteristic was shared by almost all of them: they knew very little about the Protestant Faith. The effort to explain to them the common faith of this great Christian tradition eventually produced this book. While assuming very little previous knowledge, it tries to cover the basic teachings of the main stream of Protestantism. The emphasis is upon the great central Christian assertions and upon the essential unity of classical Protestantism. The apparent diversity of the multitude of denominations should not blind us to the common witness of Protestant Christianity. Denominational differences are real, and some are very important; yet it is apparent that the vital theological discussions of the day are not carried on along denominational lines. Today as in the past, classical Protestantism has found eloquent spokesmen in many of its different branches. That I am indebted to them all, the informed reader will easily perceive. The writing of this book is an effort to express my gratitude to all the Christian thinkers here and abroad whose work has made classical Protestantism a live option for modern America.
