Review: Christian Theology: An Introduction

User Review  - Nikki - Goodreads

This was my A Level Christian Theology textbook. But I also enjoyed reading it for personal benefit. Definitely a good introduction. Perhaps as a preparation for other systematic theology texts, such as that of Grudem. Read full review

User Review  - Jeffrey Backlin - Goodreads

More of an historical overview than a scripture by scripture detailing of theology. Very helpful discussion on important people to read from various points of view. Read full review
