Review quote

"Alister McGrath has proven himself a master at engagingly and simply introducing Christian theology in all of its contested complexity. The fifth edition continues the development of the art to the great profit of student and teacher. All who work at the critical appropriation of the theological tradition stand in debt to McGrath." --M. Douglas Meeks, Cal Turner Chancellor Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies, Vanderbilt University Divinity School
