Publisher's Description

The SCM Studyguide Christian Doctrine engages readers by developing theological conversations between his or her own 'ordinary theology', on the one hand, and the theological resources of ecclesiastical and academic theology, on the other. Students get a clear view of the wide canvas of Christian doctrine, including a range of different theological positions. This study of doctrine helps those who are seeking a form of Christian thinking and spirituality - and possibly ministry - that is true to their own lives, and takes their own hesitations and doubts seriously. Each chapter is broken up into sections and interspersed with boxes which introduce pertinent extracts from classical and contemporary theologians, together with short exercises or aids to reading these texts, or provide explanations of technical theological terms. Each chapter has questions for reflection and/or discussion, together with suggestions for further reading.

Editorial Reviews

We should be grateful to Patrick Barry, a former Abbot of Ampleforth, for making this new translation of the Rule of St Benedict available to us, and to the publishers for its attractive presentation. Instead of the traditional numbering of each sentence, the text is presented in paragraphs meant, in the words of the short introduction, to encourage it to "be read holistically, as an experience of sacred reading which is close to prayer or meditation".

New readers will find this style accessible and discover that we can still learn much from St Benedict's grasp of the human psyche. Those familiar with earlier translations will be grateful for the freshness of the language found here." Esther De Waal, TLS, 13 January 2006.

"A useful Book for Readers leading study groups." Christine McMullen, The Reader, Winter 2006, Vol.103, N°4.
