Reviews - What do customers think about The Experience of God: An Invitation to Do Theology?
An Excellent Resource Nov 3, 2006
I bought this book as an "extra" text for a Foundations of Theology course and I am glad I did! It proved to be an invaluable resource for that course. It is clearly and concisely written. It uses every day language to talk about various aspects of theology. It is understandable for beginners as well as more advanced students.I have recommended it to other students and to professors. Several have bought their own copy after reviewing mine. One prof is considering using it as a basic text for his class next spring. Others have added it to their recommended reading lists.
