At present, there are different understandings of the first article of the content of the Christian faith, which makes an analysis of these interpretations from theological categories necessary. This research seeks to reveal the meaning of the first article of the content of the Christian faith in recent theological production, through a hermeneutical exercise, analyzing it bibliometrically and categorically and using the Nvivo software for the analysis of qualitative data as mediation. It is concluded that recent theological literature addresses the meaning of the first article of the Christian faith from the existence, concept, definition of God and his attributes such as his power, performance, creation, revelation and reign. Although the material found is scarce compared to other topics or areas of knowledge that can be explored in these tools, the fact is explained because, normally, it has not been a concern for theologians to publish in high impact journals. The approach to God in contemporary literature can be enriched by taking into account specific contexts such as poverty, discrimination, suffering, violence, human trafficking, migrants and political realities, among others, so that it is not only a metaphysical reflection of God, but also historical and immanent, and even with interreligious research that broadens the conception of the Christian God and responds to questions that contemporary society asks in their daily lives.
