Editorial Reviews

"McKim lays out a path to theological study that covers difficult issues and the methods and practices that inform them in a manner that is instructive to students, scholars, pastors, and laity alike. A highly recommended addition to the library of all who seek a theological primer that is tantalizing, insightful, and simultaneously engaging." Grace Ji-Sun Kim, Associate Professor of Doctrinal Theology, Moravian Theological Seminary
"Whoever said studying theology is boring was simply wrong! This book by the 'American Theological Educator' helps the beginning theology student, whether in college or seminary, to be introduced to the wealth of necessary materials in a most witty and, dare I say, humorous way! Yet, this is a very 'serious' and highly useful primer. I will make sure my beginning students get a copy of this delightful work." Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, Professor of Systematic Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary and Docent of Ecumenics, University of Helsinki
