Editorial Reviews


"This book is an extraordinary achievement, a tour de force which will introduce thousands of students to theology as a discipline with a rich heritage, a clear sense of its own methods and norms, and an elusive yet articulate understanding of Christian language." Reviews in Religion and Theology (of the previous edition)<!--end-->

"This publication is a seminal text for the student or teacher of Christian Theology. Its readability and general presentation make it a very accessible text for those with a general interest in this area of academic endeavour. In essence this is a text which would be a useful and valuable resource for the teacher or student of theology. For school-based practitioners it is a very sound teacher reference text. It contains in one volume a very thorough treatment of the key developments in Christian Theology over the past 2000 years." Religious Education Journal of Australia

"At this time when the interest in Christianity has become global and new interpretations are on the horizon, it is good to come across a scholar who is dedicated to the teaching of Theology worldwide to let us all see for ourselves what the great western thinkers said in the past. Having successfully used McGrath’s Introduction to Christian Theology, I am pleased to see a reader of this kind allowing for the teaching of a more advanced courses where primary sources make a difference." Isabel Mukonyora, Western Kentucky University

From the Back Cover

Christian Theology: An Introduction is internationally acknowledged to be among the leading textbooks in Christian theology. This new edition retains all of the highly acclaimed features of the first two editions, whilst incorporating important new material. Using clear and accessible language, the text assumes no prior knowledge of Christian theology, introducing the key ideas, debates, personalities, and schools of thought, clearly and accurately.

The third edition has been developed in response to feedback from users. Material relating to Roman Catholic and Orthodox theology have been added, as well as additional illustrative material. Some chapters have also been restructured to allow for easier study. Part II has been expanded and rearranged to allow the inclusion of additional material relating to philosophical theology. Bibliographies have been expanded and updated for every chapter.

Avoiding any form of denominational or theological bias, this essential textbook provides full coverage of the first 2,000 years of Christian theological debate, including substantial coverage of historical theology, philosophical theology, and systematic theology. An extensive glossary of theological terms is included, as well as an updated guide to theological resources on the Internet.
