By exploring five common Christian perspectives ("theological worlds"), this volume helps readers understand the basis of their own Christian attitudes, identify the sources of their confusions about life and the church, and come to a deeper appreciation of the assumptions and motivations of others.

Author W. Paul Jones demonstrates that each of the five "theological worlds" has a legitimate basis in both Scripture and tradition.  He explores why the "citizens" of each world have great difficulty understanding and accepting the legitimacy of other worlds, and why people of goodwill often misconstrue the words and intentions of others. 

Theological Worlds offers thoughtful insight to all Christians who want to understand and deal effectively with other human beings.  Christian educators will appreciate the references to literature--books, plays, songs, poetry--which illustrate the characteristics of residents of the five worlds and point toward ways to achieve nurturing experiences for students and congregations.  Preachers will find the volume helpful as a means of crafting sermons that speak to the diversity of experience among their church members.

About the Author:

2001 W. PAUL JONES is a retired professor of St. Paul School of Theology and author. After having five daughters, he became (eventually) both a Roman Catholic Priest and a monk of the Trappist Order. He lives in the hills of Missouri, working with those in poverty and those on death row.
