From the Back Cover:

"A refreshing presentation of the Christian tradition and its essential teachings"

Beginning theology students are often bewildered by the maze of beliefs represented in Christian history and tradition. In this introduction to Christian theology, Don Thorsen explores the whole Christian tradition in a simple and straightforward way. Thorsen begins with introductory chapters on theology, revelation, and authority. He then addresses biblical teaching and Christian tradition related to such topics as God, creation, sin, Jesus Christ, salvation, and eschatology.

"Within this book there is much to interest a beginning student. Text boxes highlight important points, and at the end of each chapter questions for further reflection are presented. . . . Clearly, it is a first level text to introduce the subject and it does that rather well."
--Ed Parker, Theological Book Review

"Finding a systematic theology textbook that ordinary people can read and learn from is not easy, but Dr. Thorsen has come up with one. . . . The content is well researched, clearly presented, and deeply serious. . . . Dr. Thorsen tries to be fair to as wide a spectrum of Christian belief as he can be, treating Roman Catholics and Pentecostals with equal respect and pointing out what the real disagreements are--as well as reminding us where the weight of majority opinion has generally lain. . . . The design and layout of the book is superb."
--Gerald Bray, Churchman

"This book is easy to read and it provides a survey of the views represented within historic Christianity. . . . On most issues, the author has encouraged the reader to consider the implications and applications of the doctrines, and many of the reflection questions are intended to stimulate further thinking about how to put the doctrines into practice. This book would make a good introduction to theology for people without much background in Christian doctrine. It is a basic guidebook to the field and it provides a helpful overview of most theological categories."
--Glenn R. Kreider, Criswell Theological Review
