"A helpful discussion of the pivotal role of dogmatics in shaping Christian faith."
Paul S. Fiddes
"This is a magnificent account of Christian dogmatics for our day. Combining precision with imagination, Gerhard Sauter shows how dogmatics, truly understood, is not a closed system but a place where expressions of faith converge, opening up hope for the future. It is also a forum for engaging in dialogue. While always provisional, Sauter argues, dogmatics is grounded in the promises and presence of God, and so makes clear what 'must be said' under all circumstances. This volume has an astonishing scope and comprehensiveness, as Sauter outlines the role of dogmatics in offering theological justification for all areas of church life — worship, pastoral care, mission, and ethics. This is a truly authoritative work that encourages lively exploration in thought and faith."
Christopher Morse
"Readers interested in Gerhard Sauter's previous writings will welcome this further work by a respected participant in international theological discussion. "
Kendall Soulen
"Would you welcome an introduction to theology that is contemplative and substantive in equal measure? If so, you will want to get to know Gerhard Sauter's Gateways to Dogmatics. Never brash, fast, or impatient, Sauter's invitation to theological thinking savors less of the classroom than of an afternoon of cheerful, quiet conversation or an unhurried walk through deep woods. Evangelical, catholic, and contemporary, Sauter's Gateways makes us think."
Geoffrey Wainwright
"This is an inviting book, and whoever enters its pages will find much to applaud. Three qualities in particular characterize Sauter's Gateways: it demonstrates the kind of vigorous and rigorous thinking that it advocates; it insists on the intersection of dogmatics with every facet of church life; and it displays eschatological openness to the promises and judgment of God."
