Trinity's Vanhoozer Wins 2017 Christianity Today Book Award


Byline: Trinity International University

Deerfield, Ill. -- Research Professor of Systematic Theology Kevin J. Vanhoozer of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) has been awarded the top honor in the theology/ethics category of the 2017 Christianity Today Book Awards.

Those "Five Solas" include Sola Scriptura (Scripture alone), Sola Fide, (faith alone), Solus Christus (through Christ alone), Sola Gratia (by grace alone), and Soli Deo Gloria (glory to God alone).

"This book will reward its readers, not only because of Vanhoozer's typically creative prose, but also because it offers a compelling account of biblical authority in a Protestant key," Bacote's recommendation concluded.

The magazine's editors selected one book for top honors and another for an award of merit in each of 12 categories. The 24 books chosen are "most likely to shape evangelical life, thought, and culture," according to the introduction of this year's list of honorees.

Vanhoozer notes that the subtitle captures well the purpose of the book, which is to retrieve the Solas in the spirit of mere Protestant Christianity. …
