Review:
Theology is one of those words which can divide people just by being mentioned in conversation. There are those who are intrigued by the study into who God is, and those who are intimidated by the academic implications of such a study. This book uniquely attempts to be of relevance to both sides of this divide. The content does not delve so much into a specific theology in itself, but rather does what the title suggests; it gives a guide to the concept of theology as an idea. As one of the people who would like to know more about theology but always felt intimidated by those who may know more I found this book breaks down many of the sub-categories and helped me get perspective of what any further study might involve. It definitely has whet my appetite to address the subject further.
