Editorial Reviews

"This is an excellent and extremely helpful introduction toChristian theology. Believers of all familiarity with theology willfind McGrath's explanations helpful and clarifying. This would bean excellent text for a sunday school or church bible study. Iwould even include this as a text for an introductory course intheology." (Jacob Sweeney's Blog, 16 December 2011)

"McGrath’s approach is creedal and biblical. The chaptersare lucid, engaging, and thought-provoking in so far as they serveas gateways into a complex (if not at times convoluted) field ofstudy.” (Religious Studies Review)

“The publisher's blurb reports that the first edition was'an international best seller' …It deserves this success.Students need such a clearly presented, sure-footed account of thetheological basics.” (Theological Book Review)
