In this scholarly work Paul Hinlicky transcends the impasse between dogmatic and systematic theology as he presents an original, comprehensive system of theology especially apropos to the post-Christendom North American context.

Deploying an unusual Spirit-Son-Father trinitarian scheme, Hinlicky carefully develops his system of theology through expansive, wide-ranging argumentation. He engages with other theologians throughout the book and concludes each major section by discussing an alternate perspective on the subject.

Sixteenth Century Journal
"Hinlicky has provided a profound engagement with the history of Christian theology. . . . His command of relevant literature is breathtaking. His adherence to the witness of Luther is firm. This is a book from which to learn and with which to engage for years to come."
Reading Religion
"Hinlicky has written not simply another Christian systematic theology, but a tour de force in which he attempts to take the best of the Lutheran tradition, put it into dialogue with other Christian theologians outside Lutheranism, and thereby turn the whole of the received tradition of Christian orthodox theology on its head."
Carl E. Braaten
— author of Principles of Lutheran Theology
"This volume of dogmatics boldly asserts with copious argument the great truths of Scripture that can be affirmed without the props of Christendom. Tolle lege. Take up this book and read. With me you will happily be assured that dogmatics is not dead."
Gerald R. McDermott
— coauthor of A Trinitarian Theology of Religions: An Evangelical Proposal
"This book confirms Paul Hinlicky's position as one of world Lutheranism's most important theologians. A thoroughly Trinitarian vision of reality, it is a learned engagement with many of today's theological interlocutors on some of the most compelling questions for Christians today."
Christine M. Helmer
— author of Theology and the End of Doctrine
"Hinlicky's constructive theology is in lively intellectual engagement with the world today. . . . Compellingly argues that the divine reality of the cross informs the triune God's mission to the world. Placing Luther's stubborn commitment to grace at the center of reflection, Hinlicky's theology insists that grace comes at great cost, now and in eternity."
Joseph L. Mangina
— editor of Pro Ecclesia: A Journal of Catholic and Evangelical Theology
"In our time, claims to speak the truth about God are likely to be greeted with suspicion. In Beloved Community Paul Hinlicky speaks with all the confidence of the gospel, yet always in such a way as to create space for critical probing and reflection. I am especially impressed by his habit of incorporating alternatives to his own views into the text itself. A beautifully realized work of Christian dogmatics."
