From beginning to end and through every step of the way, the Holy Spirit was active in Christ’s penal substitutionary atonement.
Gregg R. Allison
Professor of Christian Theology (2003)
Allison came to Southern in 2003 from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon, where he taught theology and church history for nine years. Allison has 18 years of ministry experience as a staff member of Campus Crusade (Cru), where he worked in campus ministry, as well as serving as a missionary to Italy and Switzerland. He also co-pastored a church in Lugano, Switzerland.
Unlike the world and its character of sinfulness, the church is characterized by holiness.
The church should stand firm in its enduring reading of Scripture’s account of divine creation and remain faithful to its historical position, praising God the Creator for his purposeful creation ex nihilo and of every specific kind of both nonliving and living things.
The church needs a clear definition of its nature before it determines and actualizes its functions and activities.
Allison’s new book with Andreas J. Kostenberger examines the Holy Spirit from the perspective of both biblical and systematic theology.
Wisdom from the past should be warmly embraced by Christians today.
You always hear about ‘new year, new you.’ But have you stopped to think about the theological reason health and fitness matters?
How is it that God rescues sinful, fallen people in this world? The gospel is the good news for Protestants, Catholics, and every man.
Despite claims to the contrary, critical doctrines central to the Protestant Reformation continue to set it apart from the Catholic Church.
