Christian Theology : An Introduction by Alister E Mc Grath

£14.99

Product description

This major new introduction aims to introduce students to the problems, tasks, traditions and personalities of Christian theology. Assuming no previous knowledge of the discipline, Dr McGrath gives a comprehensive and clear account of Christian theology, providing a full historical and systematic treatment of issues, personalities and movements, both classic and modern. This book provides a long-awaited introduction to every aspect of Christian theology. Drawing on ten years' experience of teaching Christian theology worldwide, Dr McGrath provides the most user-friendly textbook on the subject currently available. Every section of the book has been classroom-tested in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and Australia. The book contains three major sections: Landmarks, a full exposition of the historical development of Christian theology from the patristic period to the present day. This provides full accounts of key movements, debates, and writers of importance to classic and contemporary theology, including material relating to postmodernism, postliberalism, and evangelicalism; Sources and Methods, a detailed account of issues such as the nature of theological language, the nature of theological sources (such as Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience), and the manner in which they have been used throughout Christian history; Christian Theology, a detailed analysis of the main themes of Christian theology. Although the discussion is fully up to date, full weight is given to the debates of the patristic, medieval, and Reformation periods.
