There has long been a need for a comprehensive but truly introductory single authored textbook in theology. By introducing the reader to biblical, doctrinal and historical dimensions of Christianity, and by illustrating the same with selections from primary texts, this book will provide an excellent grounding in theology for both students of the discipline and the general reader. The work will familiarize the reader with key 'tools' for the scientific study of theology. The book will endeavour both to affirm the rationale behind Christian thinking in the Catholic tradition whilst familiarizing the reader with the significant contrary positions. The reader/student will be given essential grounding in biblical theology and hermeneutics to enable them to read Judeo-Christian scripture intelligently. The key testimonies regarding Jesus Christ will be scrutinized. The reader will be given essential grounding in the emergence of doctrinal orthodoxy and the later disagreements which have shaped contemporary Christianity. The reader will be familiarized with key dimensions of current Christian thinking in its dialogue with modernity.
