Theology Questions Everyone Asks: Christian Faith in Plain Languageby Gary M. Burge, David Lauber, Philip Graham Ryken

Everyone has questions about God and what matters most in life. When we ask those questions, we are asking about theology.
Burge and Lauber (New Testament and theology, respectively, Wheaton Coll.) have edited this cluster of essays by Wheaton College professors—so, this is a home recipe made available to the broader Evangelical and Christian audience. Make no mistake about its perspective: although its authors tend to dart around the more tendentious issues—check the passages on substitutionary atonement and free will—the collection's distinctiveness lies in its reliance on theology rather than story or history, in contrast to most introductions to the faith. VERDICT More than a catechism, and more elaborate than a profession of faith, this explicitly didactic and accessible series of answers to typical quandaries ought to be useful as a point of departure for many Christian education classes.
