A theology that is real, readable, and relevant -- such is Paul Jewett's God, Creation, and Redemption. Writing from a distinctively evangelical and Reformed viewpoint, Jewett offers a general, systematic introduction to these doctrines of the Christian church: how we know God (revelation and Scripture); who God is (the divine nature); what God is like (the divine attributes); and what God has done (creation).

While upholding the historic Christian faith, Jewett's approach to Christian teaching is uniquely "neo-evangelical" in that he seeks to expound and clarify orthodox Christianity for Christians today: Jewett purposely sets forth his systematic theology in light of scientific and social issues that confront the church in the contemporary world. Throughout the book Jewett also refers to literary masterpieces and to the church's hymns, giving the reader a greater appreciation for the theological treasures in our literature and our hymnody.
