Studying God: Doing Theology provides a general introductory text for theological study. It begins by focusing on the reader's own ways of experiencing and talking about God, before exploring the variety of theological voices associated with the Church and the academy, and the ways in which the texts and teachings of the Christian faith interact with our own theology. Topics include: *you and your theology *doing theology and studying theology *experience, belief, faith and practice *Bible and tradition *theological subjects, skills and methods *classic and contemporary models of theology *language about God *theology and the future.
