    1 star1 star1 star1 starNo star    reads like a textbook, but a balanced perspective on Christian theology

    For introductory level theology courses, this is THE go-to book. The Oxonian does well in describing the development of theology, in giving criticisms, and counter-criticisms, and in bringing the reader to the contemporary debates that have arisen recently. My major complaint is that it is hard to stay with; the reading is laborious (if not boring), and has little value beyond an academic level. But alas! it is a textbook, not a popular read. If you are only going to read one book on Christian theology, this should be in the running.

    A clear and indepth look at Theology through its historical setting. McGrath is clear and precise. A must have for the pastoral library.



    1 star1 star1 star1 star1 star    An enjoyable survey of theology

    Alister McGrath is a self-professed evangelical Christian theologian. While claiming to be evangelical, I've found McGrath to be a very ecunemical theologian who is able to draw on all strands of Christianity.

    His books are generally excellent, clearly written, logical, and avoid the secterian parochialism I often see in theologial works. He never dismisses Catholic or Orthodox theology out of hand because it isn't 'biblical'; he simply includes various perspectives and usually, offers a summary of what the scholarly consensus is. This is badly needed in Christian theology, which is in desperate need of renewal and revitalisation in an age of declining belief and seeming irrelevance of many classical theological positions.

    McGrath is also a very fair and balanced writer, and even when he includes his personal views, he doesn't engage in hostile polemics. I greatly admired his book on Richard Dawkins and his ideas on religion, and while Dawkins is so often militantly hostile against any form of religious belief, McGrath does not show the same hostility towards Dawkins and tries his best to understand why he is an atheist.

    McGrath has also published several valuable collections of Christian theology and literature, and also written a number of insightful books on the relationship between science and Christianity.
