Author Bio

Alister E. McGrath is Head of the Centre for Theology, Religion & Culture, and Professor of Theology, Ministry, and Education at King's College, London. A world-acclaimed theologian, he is the author of numerous best-selling books including The Christian Theology Reader (4th edition, 2011), Theology: The Basic Readings (2nd edition 2011), and Science and Religion (2nd edition, 2010), Dawkins' God: Genes, Memes and the Meaning of Life (2004), all published by Wiley-Blackwell.

Editorial Reviews

"This is an excellent and extremely helpful introduction to Christian theology. Believers of all familiarity with theology will find McGrath's explanations helpful and clarifying. This would be an excellent text for a sunday school or church bible study. I would even include this as a text for an introductory course in theology." (Jacob Sweeney's Blog, 16 December 2011)

"McGrath’s approach is creedal and biblical. The chapters are lucid, engaging, and thought-provoking in so far as they serve as gateways into a complex (if not at times convoluted) field of study." (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 the theological basics." (Theological Book Review)
