Publisher's Description

In this fully expanded and updated new edition, leading theologian Alister E. McGrath brings together key theological readings to provide a concise and balanced introduction to the Christian faith. 
  • Readings are drawn from a broad theological spectrum and includes both historical and contemporary, mainstream and cutting-edge approaches
  • Provides an introduction and analysis of each reading, along with a helpful glossary
  • Uses the Apostle's Creed as a framework to introduce readers to writings on key issues, such as faith, God, Jesus, creation, and salvation 

  • Includes a new section on the Holy Spirit and increased coverage of contemporary theology
  • Encourages readers to interact with each text and to engage with primary sources
  • Serves as an ideal companion to the bestselling textbook, Theology: The Basics, but can also be used as a concise, stand-alone reader

 Theology: The Basic Readings is an essential guide to the major topics in Christian theology.

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 bestselling books including The Christian Theology Reader (4th edition, 2011), Theology: The Basics (3rd edition, 2011), Science and Religion (2nd edition, 2010), and Dawkins' God: Genes, Memes and the Meaning of Life (2004), all published by Wiley-Blackwell.

Editorial Reviews

"Just like The Basics it would make a great text to for sunday school or bible study. It would also serve well used as a text for introductory theology, historical theology or church history courses." (Jacob Sweeney's Blog, 16 December 2011)
