(p.1) Introduction
The Gospel in Christian Traditions

Ted A. Campbell (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The Introduction lays out the basic subject to be investigated, the question of whether there has been a single message or “gospel” (“good news”) affirmed in most Christian traditions and churches. The chapter gives four reasons why the study is relevant today: because some contemporary literature about Jesus has given the impression that the traditional understanding of Jesus was grounded in later sources (the chapter disputes this claim); because some theological studies have presupposed that there has been no consistent unity to the Christian faith; because older Protestant and Anglican churches face crises of identity today that call into question their most basic commitments; and because contemporary Evangelical communities have begun to discern their common ties to older Christian churches.
