Mere Theology Summary


Mere Theology: Christian Faith and the Discipleship of the Mind by Alister McGrath, DPhil, DD

For thoughtful Christians and Agnostics alike. Are you looking to understand the role of Christianity in the making of the modern Western world? Will provide encouragement and stimulation to develop a 'discipleship of the mind'. In this inviting, accessible and exhilarating volume, Alister McGrath explores how the great tradition of Christian theological reflection can enrich our faith and deepen our engagement with the concerns and debates of the world around us. The first part of the book deals with the purpose, place and relevance of Christian theology. It provides a helpful introduction to: - the role of theology in transforming the way we see things; - how we might handle theological ambiguity; - the difference the Christian faith makes to our treatment of the natural world; - the link between theology and apologetics. The focus then switches to engaging with contemporary culture and concerns, including many issues raised by the new atheism. The second part of the work deals with the relation of the natural sciences and faith: here the core arguments of recent atheist writers are critically examined, including their demand for a 'New Enlightenment'. In short, Mere Theology addresses matters of real importance for Christian life and thought. It will prove both encouraging and stimulating to all those concerned with developing a 'discipleship of the mind'.

Mere Theology Reviews


[On Mere Discipleship]: Alister McGrath offers an appealing and lucid demonstration of theology understood as a "reflective inhabitation" of the Christian faith. This wise and elegant book shows the urgent importance of a Christian mind for faithful discipleship that engages the contemporary world. It should be essential reading for every pastor and every thoughtful Christian layperson. [On ]', Jeffrey P. Greenman, President, Regent College, Vancouver
