5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for theological students, 11 Oct 2002

This review is from: Keeping your balance: Approaching Theological and Religious Studies (Paperback)
This is a great book for students of theology and religious studies. It lays out a coherent evangelical basis for the academic work of theology and then discusses how one's academic work can and must be integrated with one's personal and devotional life.
The book is a collection of essays (most previously published individually) by established scholars such as David Field, Nigel Cameron, Stephen Williams and Carl Trueman. A brand new essay by Martin Downes on preaching is also excellent.
I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eminently Helpful, 8 Sep 2006

This review is from: Keeping your balance: Approaching Theological and Religious Studies (Paperback)
This book is an extremely helpful and thought-provoking resource for prospective theological students. The chapters "A survivor's guide: Things I wish I'd been told before studying theology", "Evangelical foundations for 'doing' theology", and "The importance of being earnest" are particularly useful for the Christian wanting to think about the practical implications of studying theology while at university, theological training college and beyond. Of particular value to me was the chapter on "maintaining an integrated devotional life," an issue which all Christian theologians must consider. I'm sure there are many other books on this subject out there but if you are searching for a guide to starting out in theology when it can be such a daunting prospect, then you need look no further than "Keeping Your Balance."
