Review

"Themelios""I would have no hesitation in recommending the "Primer" to a first year undergraduate theology student as a companion to their formal study."Linda Mercadante"How long have I searched for a text to give students before they begin the study of theology -- and, finally, here it is! Jonathan Wilson's book is the perfect introduction to the study of Christian doctrine. It is clear yet comprehensive, accessible yet not simplistic, learned yet compassionately presented. . . . Wilson's Primer will also be very useful for church groups as they explore the long-neglected area of Christian doctrine."Fisher Humphreys"Professors of theology everywhere will be delighted with any student who arrives in class with a mastery of this book. The author is evenhanded, fair-minded, levelheaded, respectful, gentle, and extraordinarily shrewd. I enthusiastically recommend this crisp, lovely book to any reader who wants to think Christianly about God."Roger E. Olson"Wilson's doctrinal primer is concise, clear, and thought-provoking; every beginner in the study of Christian doctrine would benefit from reading it."Kevin J. Vanhoozer"Wilson's "Primer" makes it not only safe but salutary for churchgoers to reenter doctrinal waters, and his clear writing ensures that no one will get in over his or her head and drown. Simple but not dumbed down, Wilson's presentation of theology is both welcome and winsome."

From the Back Cover

Penned by a Christian teacher who has led thousands of students through the unfamiliar terrain of systematic theology, "A Primer for Christian Doctrine" serves as a friendly guide to theology's topics, debates, and terminology. Telling you what you need to know as you begin your study of theology or doctrine, the book is an ideal companion to more comprehensive texts.

After a brief introduction defending the continued need for doctrine, Jonathan Wilson clearly and concisely maps out each of the main topics of Christian belief in separate chapters. He also traces the differing emphases of theologians while suggesting reasons for their differences.

Whether as a first taste of theology or as a readable summary of its present state, Wilson's "Primer for Christian Doctrine" will be an invaluable resource for students and small groups pursuing a deeper knowledge of what Christians believe.
