Format: Hardcover
I picked this book almost at random from a bookshop. While it was clear that it was the last in a series of books, no other parts of that series was on sale at the time. So I review this on a stand alone basis.

It's a very unusual book in terms of its presentation. The author has used various classic pieces of art to illustrate the subject of each chapter, which results in a high ratio of pictures to text. The pages are almost square as well, giving an unfamiliar feeling to the book. It is also very short and can be read through in less than two hours. That said, the book's brevity does not mean that it is lacking in substance. It's best to think of it as a concise summary of theological thought. Each chapter could be expanded into a book by itself, but rather than dissect the nature of God here, we are presented with only the conclusions.

I've read it a few times now and it's one to regularly dip into, hence the title of this review. I will be looking to read through the rest of the series in due course; even though this was the final book it's a little gem that has left me wanting to read more in the same series. It's a highly accessible book and one that I would highly recommend to someone who is either a christian wanting a nice reminder of the basic tenets of belief in a new, refreshing way or for someone who is interested in finding out what christians believe, in clear way, free from archaic and circular definitions and arguments.

This is a super book. Firstly it is visually stunning. Beautifully produced.

But then as you read the text you realise how much theology McGrath has condensed to give us a useful text. The text presents a clear account of the Chrisitan vision of God, and challenges all to start seeing clearly the depth and richness of the Christian conception of God.

As it does this the book keeps reminding us that it is a pointer to the greater reality of God. This book is a pearl of great value.

I recommend it to other readers.
