Item description for Introduction to Theology by Owen C. Thomas & Ellen K. Wondra...

Overview
This classic introduction to theology from an Anglican perspective has been completely revised and updated for this third edition. Organized around the topics of systematic theology, Introduction to Theology begins with an exploration of Scripture, then moves through history and tradition to contemporary debates and reconstructions. As a textbook for introductory courses in seminaries of the Episcopal Church, this book also includes references to The Book of Common Prayer, which Anglicans consider a primary source for theology. This new edition pays detailed attention to the many developments in theology since its last revision twenty years ago: the emergence of new perspectives such as womanist, mujerista, narrative, and post-modern theology; the shift in theological methods to incorporate the human sciences, recent critical philosophies, and recent developments in the physical sciences; the ongoing revisions of The Book of Common Prayer and resultant shifts in Anglican identity; and the globalization of theological education, specifically the focus on the Episcopal Church as part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Theology?

Good, but not a thorough basic text.  Dec 30, 1998
I used this book in an upper level seminary systematic theology course. Thomas covers all the basics, but depends on a lot of apriori knowledge, so this is not a book for beginners. Also, he spends far too much time doing Anglican appologetics for us non-Anglicans/Episcopalians.
