Press Reviews

An exciting new series that will provide orientation and essential information for students at the beginning of a course, in an attractive and readable format. From here the student will be well placed to move on to classic texts and larger handbooks.

- Professor John Barton, University of Oxford

Thiselton’s genius lies in his extraordinary capacity to help us to see familiar issues afresh and deepen our sense of truth. Thiselton’s method . . . is to guide the student or reader, giving him or her new vistas, insights and nourishment for the intellectual journey ahead.

- Church Times

This is a solid, sound, and secure guide to the study of theology. It covers its ground well, and, as a skilfully sketched introduction, will put any reader firmly in the picture . . . What Thiselton does — and extremely well, in my judgement — is present a clear picture of how to present theology as a range of approaches, ideas, subjects, and issues.

- Martyn Percy
