The survivor's guide to theology

This introduction to theology provides students with an overview of theology. Its three sections bring together information that is usually scattered over many volumes. The first section looks at what theology is, while the second offers an overview of the many theological systems, past and present. The last part is a quick-reference theological fact-finder, providing definitions of theological terms and brief biographies of major theologians
