Synopsis

Christian Theology A Brief Introduction by Gareth Jones

Christian Theology: A Brief Introduction is an incisive and engaging textbook that shows students how to think theologically -- how they can respond both creatively and intelligently to the issues and challenges that face them today.

Reviews

The task of a book like this is demanding: to act as matchmaker between the new student and the hoary old queen of the sciences, in the hope that things will progress further than a disappointing first date. Jonesa s method is wisely chosen. He does not pretend to give an exhaustive description of the history of Christian theology or the forms it has taken. Instead, he sets out to equip the novice with the skills needed to survive and flourish in this enticing world...It may not be the most exciting tryst in town, but an evening with this book just might help the inexperienced theologian find some confidence for future engagements. Steven Shakespeare, Modern Believing
