There has long been a need for a comprehensive but truly introductory single-authored textbook in theology.

By introducing the reader to the biblical, doctrinal and contemporary dimensions of Christianity with the help of illustrated examples from selected primary texts, the book provides an excellent grounding in theology for both students of the discipline and the general reader.

The work explores key 'tools' for the scientific study of theology, endeavoring both to affirm the rationale behind Christian thinking, and also to familiarize the reader with significant contrary positions.

The solid foundations in biblical theology and hermeneutics given in the book will enable students to read Judeo-Christian scripture intelligently.

Key testimonies regarding Jesus Christ are scrutinized and the nature of the New Testament discussed.

As well as the emergence of doctrinal orthodoxy and the later disagreements which have shaped contemporary Christianity, the reader will become familiar with the dimensions of current Christian thinking in its dialogue with post-modernity. This new edition includes an additional chapter examining Spirituality, and a series of companion videos for each chapter.
