Invitation to Theology

by David Brown

Invitation to Theology Synopsis

Theology and religious studies involve a widening of horizons, not a narrowing, for the questions they raise have to take into account a surprisingly broad range of other fields such as history, literary criticism, sociology and philosophy. What is it to be religious? What is the attitude of the various religions to their sacred texts, and how were these written? How much, if any, of the Bible is really true? Why has Christianity changed so much over the centuries? What is the relevance of philosophy to faith? What challenges are represented by modern movements like Liberation and feminist theologies?David Brown's lively and thought-provoking introduction leads the reader through questions such as these and reveals the debates at their heart. Many examples are drawn from everyday life, and a helpful glossary explains unfamiliar and specialist terms. `Invitation to Theology' covers all the major topics currently studied in schools, seminaries and universities in a sympathetic and exhilarating way, assuming no previous knowledge or commitment. It finally provides for theology and religious studies a genuine, and welcoming, invitation.
