Excellent introduction, 9 Mar. 2006
This book is the best introduction to Christian theology I have found so far. It is short, which makes it easy to read. It is broken down into brief sections, each of which I could manage to read in an evening. And best of all, in my view, it allowed me to interact with texts. These come right at the end of each section, and the author introduces each text in such a way that you can have a go at making sense of it on your own. After reading this book I felt much more confident about reading more complicated books. I also felt much better about my own ideas, because someone had helped me to explore the issues. I really enjoyed this book. The only thing that I felt was wrong with this book is that I couldn’t find the text of the Apostles creed anywhere, even though this is obviously important. Maybe include it in the next edition, please?
