A collection of essays, written to honour Robert Doyle, who is a teacher and scholar in Theology.
The first part of the book deals with various Christian philosophers and their ideologies, while the second part (which I found most engaging) deals with various Christian ways of thinking. Principally, though, the book is geared towards the concept of God being a Holy Trinity.
I found, not surprisingly, that some writers were more interesting than others, so while I found it hard to take in some of the essays, I found others fascinating. I liked the fact that the writers were brutally honest with their subject matter, for example not glossing over John Calvin's burning of heretics in the middle ages.
I found some of the book very encouraging; for example, Chew-Chern Morgan ending an essay explaining that God is not going to immediately send us to Hell for not having a good enough prayer on any given day.
While this book does seem a bit long-winded at first, I was glad I took the time to read it.
Next book: Barnaby Rudge (Charles Dickens)
