Product Description

Session three, “Categories of Theology”, provides a framework for understanding the different types of theology we can engage in as well as their respective strengths and weaknesses.

Categories of Theology

Systematic: Systematic theology 1) formulates theology from all sources of theology, including Scripture, 2) correlates the entirety Scripture to formulate a general theology for all time and for all people, and #) correlates information on a doctrine by examining the theology of all the authors.

Biblical: Biblical theology 1) restricts the formulation of theology only to the Scripture, 2) sometimes will examine the individual parts of Scripture in order to formulate a particular theology that is restricted to a certain time period and a particular people (e.g., Pre-mosaic theology), and 3) sometimes examines the theology of a certain author (e.g., John or Paul).

Historical: Restricts the formulation of theology only to the history of the Church and sometimes will examine the individual periods of Church history in order to formulate a particular theology that is restricted to a certain time period (e.g., Patristic, Medieval, and Reformation).

Philosophical: Restricts the formulation of theology only to that which can be ascertained by reason and Sometimes will examine the individual periods of philosophical history in order to formulate a particular theology that is restricted to a certain time period (e.g., enlightenment, modern, postmodern).

Creedal/Dogmatic: Restricts the formulation of theology only to that of a particular religious institution or denomination.

Apologetic: Formulates theology for the purpose of explaining and defending the faith to those outside the faith.
