From the Back Cover:

"A clear presentation of core Christian doctrines"

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.

"Combining a lightness of spirit with an elegance of style, Thorsen takes some of the most complex doctrines of the Christian faith and presents them in a readable style that is unparalleled for its precision and clarity. This text fills a noticeable gap, providing a clear presentation of core Christian doctrines the educated layperson as well as the professional minister will enjoy and find useful. This is sure to become a classic and will guide generations to come in understanding the major contours of our Christian faith."
--Gayle D. Beebe, president, Westmont College; general editor, The Renovaré Spiritual Formation Bible

"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. . . . The design and layout of the book is superb."
--Gerald Bray, Churchman

"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
