Description: Dan Stiver has crafted an engaging one-volume introduction to Christian beliefs, based on his experience teaching introductory theology courses. While describing how traditional theology came to be, he explains for both undergraduates and graduate students how theology is already a part of their life of faith. As he examines traditional theological issues and such current topics as globalization and ecology, Stiver treats theology as a living, dynamic activity. Employing useful case studies, his groundbreaking approach helps students understand what theology is--and shows them that they are participants in creating an ongoing, vigorous theology that will remain at the center of their faith for the rest of their lives.
Subjects: Methods, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology, New Testament Theology
