The Survivor's Guide to Theology

  • By M. James Sawyer
Men and women embarking on the study of systematic theology quickly find themselves awash in a sea of unfamiliar theological terms, historical names, and philosophical ""-isms."" The Survivor's Guide to Theology is both a life preserver to help stay afloat and a compass to help navigate these often unfamiliar waters. While many books on systematic theology provide introductory material, still the reader is often forced to dive right into actual theology without adequate framework for understanding. Resources for building this framework are available but scattered. This unique book brings them together in one place. The Survivor's Guide to Theology is ideal for both introduction and review/reference. - The first part deals with the question, ""What is Theology?"" It addresses issues, categories, theory of knowledge, and more. - The second part surveys nine major theological systems. For each, the author provides history and background, overview of content and theological distinctive, and a critique. - The final part provides the reader with biographical sketches of significant theologians, a brief dictionary of common theological terms, and an annotated bibliography of major theological works. ""Sawyer has effectively created a tidy theological reference library in one volume. From dispensationalism to liberation theology, from Charles Wesley to Paul Tillich, and from epistemology to eucharist, Sawyer capably and evenhandedly delivers the big picture. We anticipate many grateful readers."" Glen G. Scorgie Professor of Theology, Bethel Seminary, San Diego
