Overview

The reasons people are attracted to Christianity and its teachings are many and varied. In this book, Allen hopes "to supply more of the information (pieces of the puzzle) that are needed if a person is to make sense of the Christian understanding of God and our life in the universe." More philosopher than theologian, Allen writes for "a troubled believer," dealing with issues and questions that emerge during Christians' daily lives and in the course of contemplating Christian faith.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Diogenes Allen's Theology for a Troubled Believer is one of the richest expressions of theology in years. Few are capable of integrating scholarly and spiritual depth in a single volume as Allen has done here. He has effortlessly and coherently blended together classic philosophy and literature, Holy Scriptures, and the historic witness of the saints to illustrate and uncover central themes of Christian doctrine. We receive here a rare gift from one of our leading theolo-gians today" W. Mark Richardson, Professor of Systematic Theology General Theological Semi-nary, New York
