Item description for Exploring the Mind, Heart and Soul of Theology: What We Can Learn from Four Classic Theological Debates by Gregory C. Higgins...
Overview Many books and courses help us to understand doctrines and dogmas and basic theological positions, but often two basic questions remain only partially answered: How do theologians go about doing what they do, and Why do they do it that way? Exploring the Mind, Heart, and Soul of Theology helps answer those questions. It provides a solid introduction to several of the most crucial questions in the history of Christian theology, and it gives readers the opportunity to begin "doing" theology themselves. In Part 1, "The Mind of Theology," Higgins helps us understand the construction of a theological argument and the thought-processes involved in developing a theological position. In Part II, he takes us into, The Heart of Theology," by inviting us to analyze and reflect on four theological debates from the history of Christianity that continue to have vital significance today. Finally, in Part III, he uses four classic debates to take us into "The Soul of Theology." Showing how each theologian in the debate was driven by deep spiritual principles and passion, and how their spirituality can help give us insights into living the Christian life. Finally, discussion questions within each section help readers focus on the important issues and actually engage in theology. This book will help students in introductory courses and in adult education come to a deeper understanding and richer appreciation of the art of theology.
