Publisher's Summary

The 2011 award-winning publication The Christian Faith garnered wide praise as a thorough, well-informed treatment of the philosophical foundations of Christian theology, the classical elements of systematic theology, and exegesis of relevant biblical texts. Pilgrim Theology distills the distinctive benefits of this approach into a more accessible introduction designed for classroom and group study.
In this book, Michael Horton guides readers through a preliminary exploration of Christian theology in "a Reformed key". Horton reviews the biblical passages that give rise to a particular doctrine in addition to surveying past and present interpretations. Also included are sidebars showing the key distinctions readers need to grasp on a particular subject, helpful charts and tables illuminating exegetical and historical topics, and questions at the end of each chapter for individual, classroom, and small-group reflection.
Pilgrim Theology will help undergraduate students of theology and educated laypersons gain an understanding of the Christian tradition’s biblical and historical foundations.

Great content, but don't blink

What did you love best about Pilgrim Theology?

Michael has a great way of explaining deep topics without overwhelming the reader/listener, as long as you don't mind (painlessly) expanding your vocabulary in the process.
The pace demands the listener pay closer attention than some would prefer (but that is more of a criticism of the potential listener than this author). Fortunately he keeps things quite interesting.
I started listening on the release date and kept it on continuously to the end, pausing only to sleep. Can I give this book SIX stars???

What other book might you compare Pilgrim Theology to and why?

Most anything by R C Sproul - written for those of us who haven't graduated from Seminary but secretly wish we had.

Have you listened to any of Vicas Adam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have no previous experience with this narrator. He did an above-average job with this book, but credit should be given to the author for writting in a style that is more conversational than most Theological texts.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I appreciate Michael's treatment of the Gospel itself, which I gather is something few church-goers could accurately define, much less communicate clearly.

Any additional comments?

Many thanks to Audible for providing this book and others like it, especially when so many "contrary theological opinions" pepper the shelves here...

great book, not a good adaptation

Mike Horton is a brilliant thinker and great writer. I am disappointed with this audio book - wish I had read the book instead. One thing is that sidebars and lists that work well in print don't work as well in audio. Also the narrator is not a great fit for this book - too flat, not getting emphasis in the right place, and not pronouncing ancient names in the commonly accepted ways. Nevertheless it's a great book.
