Product Description

Beginning students of Christian theology often get lost in the labyrinth of doctrinal terms and formulations arising from the twists and turns of church tradition and history. An Exploration of Christian Theology by Don Thorsen provides a map for navigating Christian theology.

Writing from a broad-ranging perspective, Thorsen opens with introductory chapters on theology, revelation, and authority and then goes on to interact with biblical teaching and Christian tradition related to such topics as God, creation, sin, the person and work of Jesus Christ, salvation, and eschatology.

Publisher's Description

Beginning theology students often find themselves bewildered by a maze of beliefs represented in Christian history and tradition. Don Thorsen's An Exploration of Christian Theology unravels the knots of theology by exploring the whole Christian tradition in a simple and straightforward way.

Beginning with introductory chapters on theology, revelation, and authority, this book deals with biblical teaching and Christian tradition related to such topics as God, creation, sin, Jesus Christ, salvation, and eschatology.

Chapters conclude with helpful questions for further reflection and discussion. The author's own original line art, used throughout the text, keeps the reader's feet on the ground with needed comic relief. A convenient glossary of theological terms makes this an even more useful tool.

This is an excellent, college level introduction to Christian theology for classroom or individual use.

Endorsements

It is with real joy and pleasure that I commend to you Don Thorsen's latest book, An Exploration in Christian Theology. Don Thorsen is one of America's finest contemporary theologians and he has provided one of the most accessible books on the market today,. Combining a lightness of spirit with an elegant style, Thorsen takes some of the most complex doctrines of the Christian faith and presents them in a readable style that is unparalleled in precision and clarity. the structure of the book is clear, the whimsical yet hard-hitting style is attractive, and the additional study materials are laid out in a thoughtful and helpful manner. This text fills a noticeable gap. providing a clear presentation of core Christian doctrines the educated lay person as well as teh professional minister will enjoy and find useful. This is sure to become a classic and will guide generations to come in understanding the major contours of our Christian faith.
