ABeth Felker Jones offers a concise and clearly written introduction to theology for undergraduates or interested lay people She ably covers the standard theological topics Though I usually feel like sidebars are interruptions they are purposeful and beneficial in this book they contain excerpts from primary sources theologically rich hymns and poems and extended uotations from scholars who either have had significant influence or whose important majority world perspectives have yet to be appreciated by the Western academy

This is the first book I ve ever won from Goodreads First Reads and in the past week or so I ve won three other books I m one lucky dog I wasn t sure how much I was going to enjoy this book I couldn t imagine some book I won could be that good but when I read the first few chapters I was uite surprised by how informative enjoyable and lucid this book is I found Jones s work to be a pleasing introduction to the world of theology As someone who has been a student of apologetics my knowledge of theology was good but not well rounded This book cleared up a lot of uestions I had about different viewpoints and definitions of several theological terms Jones successfully makes sure that the reader doesn t get too bogged down in studying God by including the occasional poem or hymn of praise that reminds one of His greatness She presents many of the arguments for a wide variety of theological issues that are important to understand Although this is a well done portion of the book it is not without its flaws While some would see the absence of a obvious author opinion as a uality it makes it difficult to see the author as a person when she does not make any comments based from opinion I am aware that this book is meant to be a scholarly work but for the average reader the feeling of a connection or understanding with the author is essential Jones covers many heretical teachings of the church throughout the centuries that while informative and enlightening in a way that helps us avoid these theological missteps creates a problem where the reader might get bored and drug down through seemingly needless detail on controversies that have been long solved I don t think the exploration of these heresies was unnecessary or bad so to say but I will admit that the detail put into them became tiring after a period of time The author includes theological perspectives from world theologians in places like Africa or South America Why the author is interested in presenting these views or what it has do with her andor the material goes unexplained I would say its most likely due to her fascination with the ecumenical church but this interest alone cannot explain why these views would be explored when the purpose of the book is supposed to be learning to think and live theologically Not to study worldviews on God It s somewhat difficult to tell who the audience for this book is supposed to be Even as a longtime laymen student of apologetics and some theology I learned plenty of new things but there was a lot of material that I couldn t imagine someone reading this kind of book wouldn t already know It is an introduction so I understand trying to flesh out some of the basics but the book sometimes dives into basics that anyone who has attended church for a half year would understand A minor complaint of mine would be Jones s reliance on the uotes of John Wesley whom she uses incessantly I would assume from this that she is a follower of Wesleyanism but even so I would have liked of a variety of sources uoted She sticks to her favorites and doesn t branch too far out from there The biggest problem is the theme of the book practicing Christian doctrine While the title of the book makes the premise sound like the book will be approaching theology from a fresh angle by trying to show how theology can affect you and make you live life differently this aspect is relegated to barely a cameo appearance Jones spends most of each chapter summarizing each topic as it is viewed in theology and at the end of the chapter she uses about a page to try to explain how this affects the way you ll live life While I enjoyed the book and gained a lot from it this premise of living and thinking theologically appears to be merely a tacked on gimmick to sell what is otherwise an introductory theology text to a wider audience If Jones had only spent time on each section detailing this topic it might not be a problem As it is it appears that Jones is desperately attempting to figure out a tie in to the theme for each chapter even when there isn t one And lastly the book ends without much of a sense of closure due to the neglect of the main premise The last chapter is a good one that deals with eschatology teaching of the last things like heaven hell the second coming etc but after that is a benediction and the book ends Jones should have ended it by including a final chapter that summarizes the book s main points and argues for the practice of its subject She attempts to do so in the benediction but it is not uite as effective as a last chapter could have been If this book were to enter a second printing I would keep the benediction but add the needed chapter Overall despite my criticisms I m partial towards the book and I was happy to read it I learned a lot and I would recommend it to those who are looking for an introductory theology work that is understandable to the layman It s not perfect but it does an intelligent job 35 2018 - 2019 Daily Planner;

As an introduction to evangelical theology that is open to the ecumenical breadth of Christianity past and present this is not a bad book But as theology I struggle to engage it seriously as theology as such Jones and I are maybe just too different for me to see the book as significant understanding For instance it seems to me that1 The book is addressed all but exclusively to an audience of evangelicals who speak a certain language There is very little argument that is genuinely public much repetitive doxological self reinforcement of an evangelical grammar and lexicon often self expression 2 That language has to be sealed off from science ranging from physical cosmology to biologically based psychology to historical textual criticism Any of these would flush out the many suppressed inferences unuestioned assumptions made in Jones doctrinal exposition and strain them perhaps to breaking point3 The approach involves having a tin ear for symbolism and a talent for breathy gushing in place of critical understanding let alone of post critical na vet There is a great deal of scriptural eisegesis4 I m all for Christians striving to be better people and I think this book has some potential for that purpose In that sense it is theology Even then though the titular conceit that Christian doctrine is practiced does not emerge as a clear method or end but remains often as an occasion for yet purpled prose in the mode of doxology and exhortationBut this book is not written for me If anyone reads this far who can recommend some thing else in evangelical theology I am open to suggestions
