Christian Theology: An Introduction
Christian Theology: An Introduction
by Alister E. McGrath
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable and trustworthy, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is difficult not to wax lyrical about Alister McGrath's grasp of theology and his skills in writing. Christian Theology is an essential linearity of theological history. Valuable to students and teachers, this volume is a trustworthy source of information (Theologian/Philosopher).

4.0 out of 5 stars Gilgamesh - connected translation, 10 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gilgamesh (Paperback)
Ideal edition for the general reader, smooth and connected translation: Great as a foundation before approaching more scholarly editions like Myths from Mesopotamia (Dalley, S: 2008). The texts are developed as a continuous narrative rather than being presented exactly as they appear in the original sources.
While made for easy reading this version still provides compelling insight into preceding Biblical flood and influences on Greek Mythology. (Theologian/Philosopher).
