Reviews

Towey is clearly a very gifted writer, and able to take his readers through dense and complex theological issues with assurance and clarity. In the highways and byways of Christian history, and the maze of doctrines, and theological and moral issues, he is as sure a guide as one could hope for. * Martyn Percy, Christ Church, Oxford, UK *
Look no further, students of Christian theology. In one volume Anthony Towey offers a masterful guide to Christianity from its biblical beginnings to its postmodern present. Prepare to encounter people, events and ideas that have sealed fates, shaped history, and stirred the hearts and minds of generations. With erudition, enthusiasm and humour, he has produced that rare thing: a compendium of Christian theology to make the brain hum and the heart sing. * Julie Clague, University of Glasgow, UK *
Towey writes engagingly. He refreshingly takes the student of theology into areas that will allow them to sense the richness, complexity, problems and wonders of the Christian tradition. * Gavin D'Costa, University of Bristol, UK *
This is a faithful, intelligent, accessible and witty introduction to theology. Its biblical, historical approach lets students know where theology came from and what data it must deal with. * Gerald O'Collins, Gregorian University, Rome, Italy *
The greatest challenge when teaching theology to undergraduate students is that of translating what is, for so many today, a new language and alien concepts into something that is accessible and which can be understood. Towey achieves this without ever over-simplifying or diminishing the content. * Eamonn Fitzgibbon Director of The Irish Institute for Pastoral Studies, Ireland *
