Summary

Beginning theology students often find themselves bewildered by a maze of beliefs represented in Christian history and tradition. Don Thorsen's Invitation to Christian Theology unravels the knots of theology by exploring the whole Christian tradition in a simple and straightforward way. Beginning with introductory chapters on theology, revelation, and authority, this book deals with biblical teaching and Christian tradition related to such topics as God, creation, sin, Jesus Christ, salvation, and eschatology. Chapters conclude with helpful questions for further reflection and discussion. The author's own original line art, used throughout the text, keeps the reader's feet on the ground with needed comic relief. A convenient glossary of theological terms makes this an even more useful tool. This is an excellent, college level introduction to Christian theology for classroom or individual use.
