An introduction to theology

Preface to Christian Studies ed. F. G. Healey (Lutterworth Press £3.00)

THIS introduction to theology by a team of

Nonconformist dons is directed to students in schools, colleges, and universities. The name of some contributors show the standard of handling set — C. F. D. Moule, F. F. Bruce, E. Gordon Rupp.

Old and New Testaments get a chapter each, followed by an essay on Church History and by one other each on Creeds, Worship, Christian Ethics, Ecumenism. There are several longish references to Karl Rahner, and — given the kindly outlook of the various essays — a significant corn e ment on Dr. Hans Kiing. Each topic receives a wideranging treatment. quite up-todate and clear. But there can be few students who could possibly use the book without considerable help from a tutor. The book is well printed and produced, though the readers who prefer footnotes will be irked by having to turn to the back of the book to light on each note they wish to consult.

The index is about adequate, though rather thin. Given the quality of the contents and the standard of turn-out, the price is reasonable, but few individual students could afford it.
