Theology: A Very Short Introduction

Full Product Description

This Very Short Introduction provides both the believer and non-believer with a balanced survey of the central questions of theology.

David Ford's approach draws us in to considering the principles underlying religious belief, including the centrality of salvation to most major religions, the concept of God in ancient, modern, and postmodern contexts, the challenge posed to theology by prayer and worship, and the issue of sin and evil.

He also probes the nature of experience, knowledge, and wisdom in theology, and discusses what is involved in interpreting theological texts.

In this new edition, Ford considers the contemporary relevance of theology, including the effect of globalization and digitized communication, examines the theological responses to change and development in science, considers the impact of increased engagement between Islam and the West, and looks at the development and importance of theology between the different faiths.
