Sacred Adventure provides an introduction to religious studies and the discipline of theology from a Christian perspective. This study brings together many of the clearest theological thinkers, and presents their ideas in an understandable way. William C. Graham assembles not only some of the most accessible interpretations of the basic theological concepts, but also includes the creative expression of major figures such as Thomas Aquinas and Gerard Manley Hopkins. This juxtaposition creates a thorough, philosophical, introduction to Christian theology for any interested person, whether a person of faith or someone merely curious about Christian theology.
