Overview

The second edition of this book, written by internationally-acclaimed theologian and author Alister E. McGrath, has been completely updated in response to feedback from readers. It retains the clarity and accessibility that made the first edition so popular, whilst expanding its coverage of a range of issues.
  • Includes a major new chapter on sacraments and new sections on core topics, including the problem of suffering, the theology of sin, concepts of heaven, and views of the millennium
  • Uses the Apostle’s Creed as a framework to introduce readers to key theological issues, such as God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, faith, creation, salvation, atonement, religious history and heaven
  • Contains within each chapter an overview of one of these themes, presents relevant biblical passages, and summarizes the contribution of one major theologian
  • Written by one of the world’s leading theologians for anyone taking a first short course in Christian theology
  • Can be used alongside McGrath's Theology: The Basic Readings for a complete overview of the field

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“McGrath’s approach is creedal and biblical. The chapters are lucid, engaging, and thought-provoking in so far as they serve as gateways into a complex (if not at times convoluted) field of study.” (Religious Studies Review, March 2009)

"The publisher's blurb reports that the first edition was 'an international best seller' … .It deserves this success. Students need such a clearly presented, sure-footed account of the theological basics." (Theological Book Review, 2008)
