In this compelling memoir Carl Braaten tells the story of his life as a theologian, from his early years as a missionary kid in Madagascar, to his years of study at the universities of Paris, Harvard, Heidelberg, and Oxford, to his decades of teaching. Throughout his narrative Braaten delves into the many theological movements, controversies, and personalities that have shaped his thinking and writing.

A well-written theological autobiography exhibiting Braaten's signature accent -- "evangelical without being Protestant, catholic without being Roman, and orthodox without being Eastern" -- Because of Christ is an intellectual travelogue par excellence, an informed chronicle of the chief theological conflicts of the twentieth century that have put the integrity of the gospel to the test.
