A contemporary approach to theological questions. It deals with a number of significant theological issues including the Enlightenment, biblical criticism, problems with the Creeds, modern explanations of life and its questions, and rebuilding theology in the modern world. The approach is essentially "problem centred", in the sense that it seeks to analyze and explore the difficulties with certain aspects of Christian theology. The reader is asked to engage in and grapple with important challenges to theology from the philosophical to the psychological and sociological, including: philosophical challenges to theology from Plato to the present; the relevance of Creeds for contemporary theology; the conflict between scientific and religious explanations of events; the existence of other religions; and challenges from Marxism, liberalism and feminism. The book throws up questions for students to think about and maintains a contemporary flavour by drawing on current examples and events. Wide-ranging in its content, it is structured to act as a teaching guide: each chapter concludes with a list of essay questions as well as a selection of issues suitable for debate. Each issue is dealt with succinctly, providing a base from which students can engage in wider reading.
