Students of theology can find themselves strengthened and renewed while they study, but it can also be a time of trial. This reader shows how to navigate such trials as we study for and then engage in Christian ministry. It includes wisdom from voices past: Augustine; Martin Luther; C. H. Spurgeon; B. B. Warfield; Dietrich Bonhoeffer and C.S. Lewis. Several modern authors also show how to navigate various aspects of theological study successfully: D. A. Carson (Biblical Studies); Carl Trueman (Church History); Gerald Bray (Systematic Theology); Dennis Hollinger (Christian Ethics); and John Woodhouse (Seminary life). The book shows how we can move from being `lost among words' as we study of theology, to being `lost for words' in praise of God.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Without the "trials of theology" we remain on the surface of the statutes of God. May the Spirit of truth make this book a means of true thinking about God, deep affections for God, and beautiful obedience to God, through Jesus Christ who is God."

-- John Piper

"If you know a young man who is hoping to study theology, or is already studying it, the gift of this book would be of great benefit."

-- Peace and Truth

"The theologians in this volume know that the study of theology has many pitfalls. Yet to know and love God has filled them with joy, and they want to assist you, just as they have assisted my co-editor and me."

-- Andrew Cameron

"This is the book that so many of us have been waiting for, a book that will be sure to grace the lives of students and pastors and their teachers in the years to come."

-- R. Kent Hughes

"Teachers of the Scriptures need mentors so that we are refreshed by God's presence and power in our studies. I was consoled, convicted, instructed, and even ushered into God's presence by this book".

-- Thomas R. Schreiner
