Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume is a primer on the ways theology can be of practical value both to fledgling Christians and to those who've been in the faith for so long that they've lost sight of the basics. According to Brian Rosner, the great theologians in the history of the church have always found that theology affords genuine comfort in the face of life's difficulties. In The Consolations of Theology Rosner and other practical theologians present a compelling blend of biography and theology that profoundly addresses the range of human suffering. Contents and contributors: Introduction: On Consolation Gwenfair Adams Lactantius on Anger Richard Gibson Augustine on Obsession Andrew Cameron Luther on Despair Mark Thompson Kierkegaard on Anxiety Peter Bolt Bonhoeffer on Disappointment Brian Rosner C. S. Lewis on Pain Robert Banks
