Product Reviews

"Far from being choppy, this team-based approach to theological writing has produced a clear, smooth, and approachable text. This is an excellent theological approach for researchers, church leaders, and both graduate and undergraduate students to explore, which advances earlier see-judge-act models." - The Reverend Jonathan C. Roach.
