A superb introduction!,
This review is from: Mere Theology: Christian Faith and the Discipleship of the Mind (Paperback)
Firstly this book in an introduction to Theology. It answers questions like 'should I study Theology?', 'Why is Theology important?'. It doesn't answer questions like 'how can I study Theology?'. That said it's an excellent book. The writing style is relaxed and accessible and you can tell that Alister McGrath is passionate about the subject, and its application in real life (as opposed to the classroom).
I loved reading it and would happily buy this for anyone interested in Theology (my copy is covered in notes and highlighted sections).
This quote sums the book up perfectly:
"Theology is at its best and its most authentic when it is put into practice in ministry, mission and worship"
