Small book, big subject;: highly recommended,
This review is from: Theology: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) (Paperback)
I found this book a perfect introduction to Christian Theology, easy to read but also quite stretching at times for those of us who are not professional academics. The author's style is warm & welcoming: he has an open approach, is honest about his own position and does not does not preach. I read the book as a committed Christian believer who wanted to dig deeper into my faith, ask some fundamental questions and be challenged about what and why I believe. For this, the book is perfect, and having read it I find myself dipping back into it on a regular basis. Friends who have no particular Christian commitment have also found this book interesting, as it provides an intelligent and structured explanation of a complex and personal subject.
