Providing an accessible one-volume guide to Christian doctrine, this book offers a thoroughly re-written version of the SCM Core Text. Since the publication of the original, a significant shift in the teaching of doctrine in theological colleges and beyond, has been necessary to confront reality of the broader global context of the church, and recognise the role of one’s positionality in terms of race, socio-political outlook, gender, disability and so on. In this second edition, the author seeks to address these issues, refusing to position himself as an ‘authority’ and instead inviting students to understand doctrine as both contingent and complex. Fully updated for clarity and yet retaining its role as a rigorous introduction to its subject, the book includes new ‘interruptions’, which offer counter-voices and new directions for students to take in their studies.
"In this wonderful book, Mike invites us to explore Christian Doctrine, without ever imagining we can fully understand God and God's ways with us. The beauty and mysteries of the Christian faith are made accessible, as are perspectives often overlooked in such texts. In this book, Christian doctrine is brought into dialogue with some of our most urgent questions and concerns, proving the ongoing importance of theology for our human experience." Selina Stone
