Reviews - What do customers think about Tradition and Incarnation: Foundations of Christian Theology?

Theology, anyone?  Dec 1, 2000
This excellent introduction to Christian theology is born from the author's many years of teaching an introduction to theology course to undergraduates, and is, in fact, the text he uses for the course. While written for undergraduates, the book is actually well suited to college-educated adults looking to study theology for the first time, perhaps as part of a study group. The general premise of the book is that it is reasonable and, indeed, most profitable, to approach theology from within a community of faith - a tradition. He argues this in the face of modern suspicions of tradition that exalt reason and individualism over all else.

Anyone who has ever seriously asked the following questions should read this book: How can we ever really know anything about God? Which came first, the Bible or the church? Since the Bible is so old, how are we sure that what is says is true? What is an intelligent way to read and interpret the Bible? Did Jesus ever really exist? Miracles never really happened did they? Did Jesus really bodily rise from the dead? If so, what does that mean for me?

Written from within the Catholic tradition, it is sensitive to ecumenical concerns. The book is written clearly. The chapters develop from the general to the specific and logically and naturally flow one to another. The chapter questions and exercises at each chapter's end are a true test of one's reading comprehension.
