Very comprehensive March 31, 2011
This textbook I got from ecampus rental textbooks styles itself as a basic outline of Christian theology that assumes the reader knows nothing and takes him step by step through all major Christian theologies. As a recreational reader who wanted just that sort of basic introduction, I have found this textbook has lived up to its promise while also being easy to read. Subjects are not all covered in depth due to the material the textbook addresses. However, extensive bibliographies at the end of each chapter allow the reader to explore each subject further.
