More About This Textbook

Overview

This classic introduction to theology from an Anglican perspective has been completely revised and updated for this third edition. Organized around the topics of systematic theology, Introduction to Theology begins with an exploration of Scripture, then moves through history and tradition to contemporary debates and reconstructions. As a textbook for introductory courses in seminaries of the Episcopal Church, this book also includes references to The Book of Common Prayer, which Anglicans consider a primary source for theology.

This new edition pays detailed attention to the many developments in theology since its last revision twenty years ago: the emergence of new perspectives such as womanist, mujerista, narrative, and post-modern theology; the shift in theological methods to incorporate the human sciences, recent critical philosophies, and recent developments in the physical sciences; the ongoing revisions of The Book of Common Prayer and resultant shifts in Anglican identity; and the globalization of theological education, specifically the focus on the Episcopal Church as part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

    Great Introduction

    Thomas gives one of the few, or only, coherent accounts of, essentially, Anglican doctrine and theology. It is coherent because its English isn't the normal strained rhetoric of theologians. Frankly, after many courses in theology, this is the only book I would hand to beginners at any level: lay, seminarian or graduate student. After grasping Thomas' book you can go on to read anything else and have a firm grounding on which you may rely.
