What is "Pilgrim" Theology?
Here's an excerpt from the Study Guide:
'Pilgrim' theology is the relentless pursuit of reality.
"Pilgrim" theology is the relentless pursuit of reality. This journey of understanding must begin with the central claim of all Scripture, which is the gospel — the good news of Jesus Christ. The gospel does not just tell us that God exists. The gospel tells us what God is like, how he has acted in history, and where we stand in relationship to him...
Theology...is a pursuit of radical transformation.
Theology drives us to believe in the particular God who is revealedin the Scripture and is known in Jesus Christ. Studying theology is not simply a pursuit of information; rather, it is a pursuit of radical transformation...
Theology should connect to practical living. The Bible does not set truth and experience and our head and our heart against each other. Pilgrim Theology and this Study Guide are both written to help us integrate our faith and practice, what we know and what we do. "Theology is the lived, social, and embodied integration of drama, doctrine, doxology, and discipleship" (The Christian Faith, 70).
What's in the study guide?
What's most unique about this 82-page Study Guide is this: The discussion questions in each section are organized under Michael Horton's four coordinates for exploring theology, Drama, Doctrine, Doxology, and
Discipleship. Organized this way, the questions provides tangible help for connecting our knowledge of Scripture and doctrine to our practice of worship and daily life.
As a sample, here are the questions from the section entitled "The Resurrection of the Body and the Life Everlasting":
