Overview

Alister McGrath's Christian Theology: An Introduction is one of the most internationally-acclaimed and popular Christian theology textbooks in use today. This 5th edition has been completely revised, and now features new and extended material, numerous additional illustrations, and companion resources, ensuring it retains its reputation as the ideal introduction to Christian theology.

The revised 5th edition includes:

  • Entirely new sections exploring Copernicanism and Darwinism
  • Extended discussions of Augustine’s doctrine of creation, Trinitarian theologies of religion, and the relation of Christianity to other faiths
  • A number of additional illustrations and student-friendly features throughout
  • Retains the chapter structure of the 4th edition, ensuring comparatability with earlier editions and courses based on these
  • A fully updated website available at www.wiley.com/go/mcgrath, featuring new student resources such as study questions and additional lectures from Alister McGrath

Retaining its successful structure, but now expanded and updated to reflect invaluable reader feedback, Alister McGrath's Christian Theology offers an unparalleled introduction to the concepts and key developments of 2,000 years of Christian thought. It may be used as a stand-along volume, or alongside The Christian Theology Reader, 4th Edition for a complete overview of the subject.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Alister McGrath has proven himself a master at engagingly and simply introducing Christian theology in all of its contested complexity. The fifth edition continues the development of the art to the great profit of student and teacher. All who work at the critical appropriation of the theological tradition stand in debt to McGrath."
M. Douglas Meeks, Cal Turner Chancellor Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies, Vanderbilt University Divinity School

"An expert at luring the reader into the imposing terrain of theological thought, Alister McGrath navigates its winding paths with energy and grace. With Dr. McGrath as beacon and guide, it is a satisfying journey."
The Rev. Deborah Halter, Lutheran Campus Ministry, Atlanta, GA

    Needs Some Work

    While the book does contain all of the materials, it is not concurrent with the page numbers of the print copy. Some work on formatting is needed.
