Approaching the Study of Theology
The rest of the book falls into three parts:
Part 1 describes the major approaches that have been developed by scholars over the centuries, which are still relevant today;
Part 2 explains the main concepts and issues, highlighting their significance in the work of major thinkers;
Part 3 provides a helpful glossary of all the key terms that readers need to understand in order to find their way around the subject.
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.
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.
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.
