^^In short, Mere Theology addresses matters of real importance for Christian life and thought. It will prove both encouraging and stimulating to all those concerned with developing a 'discipleship of the mind'.^



- Publisher Mere Theology sets out to explore how the great tradition of Christian theological reflection enriches our faith and deepens our engagement with the concerns and debates of the world around us. The theme of the first half of the book is the intellectual capaciousness of the Christian faith, and its ability to bring about a new and deeply satisfying vision of reality. Christian theology is here presented as a 'discipleship of the mind'. Later chapters explore the gospel mandate for vibrant engagement with our culture, with topics including the need for the church to articulate and defend its ideas in the public domain, especially in the light of the challenge of the 'New Atheism'.
