Book News Annotation:

In a book aimed at the first-time reader of Christian theology, a retired Irish teacher/administrator distinguishes between theology and religion and calls theology "a struggle between a sense of summons [from a transcending value] and the world in which we live." Themes that major early to contemporary theologians treat include death, guilt, grace, science, social justice, and of course, God. The book includes timelines, definitions of terms, and suggested further reading. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
