The best introduction to Christian Theology for students
This is by far the best, most comprehensive and most clear intro to Christian theology available. In any attempt such as this certain areas will not be handled with the utmost sophistication (perhaps outdated notions of Gregory of Nyssa not overcoming tritheism and the old chestnut about Barth's "modalism" being preserved) but on the whole it's impossible to envision a more sucessful, comprehensive and clear intro to Christian Theology.
Great introduction and overview
I found this book to be exactly what I was looking for - an unbiased, comprehensive introduction to Christian theology that I could actually understand! Having read some other so-called "Introductions", I was wary about this one. So often they turn out to be unintelligible, or just an excuse for the writer to promote his own views or ride his own hobbyhorses. McGrath made me feel like a genius. Every idea was clearly explained. I bought this book after a friend had recommended it, and was really pleased that I did. I gather that a new edition (fourth) is due next year, and hope that this will continue the excellent tradition of the previous editions. This is a great book for anyone who, like me, wanted to learn about theology. It left me wanting to know more and go further!
Great content, inaccurate indexing in 3rd Edition
Really loved the 2nd edition, which I borrowed from the college library. It's a great reference source for anyone doing theological work - clear, concise - good entry level but has the weight for more serious study. I was given the 3rd edition as a Christmas present and was sad to find the index isn't accurate - I contacted the publishers, who know about it and apologised. Next edition not due until 2010.
