9780310479512: Understanding Doctrine

'Christianity is not, and never has been, about finding the right combination of words! It is about encountering the living and loving God.' From this truth many people have drawn the wrong conclusion that doctrine is irrelevant, except (maybe) for theologians. Yet every time we talk about God, Jesus, or the Bible we end up making doctrinal statements. If our faith is to be coherent and if we want to grow in our faith, we cannot avoid thinking about doctrine. In this highly readable and much-needed book, Alister McGrath explains what doctrine is, why it is important, and what its limitations are. He then briefly examines three key doctrines to illustrate his points: the Incarnation, the Atonement, and the Trinity.
