Since the age of the apostles, thoughtful Christians alike have reflected upon the meaning of Scripture, the nature of divinity, the call to discipleship, and countless other topics in the Christian religious tradition. Theology, the study of God and religious belief, is as important to Christian life today as ever.
And yet theology can sometimes seem remote from the everyday life of faith; too often we misunderstand it as an academic activity confined to ivory towers. Now, Introduction to Theology gives you an accessible and engaging overview of the history, fundamental elements, and present forms of theology. Under the erudite guidance of Boston College's Fr. Richard Lennan, you will gain invaluable insights into your own faith.
Through examining the workings of theology - its tasks, methods, and goals - you will discover the profound relationship between the activity of theologians and the everyday world of living faith. Learning about theological topics will help you deepen your relationship with God and answer Jesus' call to discipleship in our own time. You will also learn about theology's use of Scripture, its basis in God's self-revelation, the role it plays in church doctrines, and the deep connection between theology and spirituality.
Join Fr. Lennan on this fascinating and insightful journey through our religious tradition. Introduction to Theology will enrich your mind and inspire your spirit.
