Introducing college scholars to the educational self-discipline of Christian theology, this booklet serves as an orientation to "fundamental theology" from a Protestant viewpoint via addressing matters which are initial and foundational to the self-discipline within the context of a liberal arts collage. The publication additionally units forth what has normally been referred to as a "theological encyclopedia", that's, an outline of the components of Christian theology that jointly shape the self-discipline right into a unified educational topic. ultimately, the booklet examines the relation of Christian theology to the humanities and sciences in the collage and underscores the necessity for severe and confident interplay with those different educational disciplines.

12 Fundamental Theology belief and action in the world. One should not be surprised that such convictions, religious and otherwise, can become disastrously destructive. Lest one conclude, however, that the best solution going forward is not to have any convictions at all, given how strongly-held religious and anti-religious principles can wreak such havoc upon society when they “go public,” consider what our world would be like today if people of deep conviction had not been concerned about slavery, women’s rights, child labor, civil rights, human rights, world peace, and other issues of social justice.

7 10 Fundamental Theology Scriptures indicate about the nature of God’s being and God’s relation to the world? How are these understandings similar to or different from a Muslim understanding that develops from a close reading of the Quran? Is God involved in the way that the Jew or Muslim thinks or as the Christian thinks, or in some other way? Do Jews, Christians, and Muslims worship the same God (but in differing ways)? 10 Sometimes people speak of God only to question that transcendent reality altogether or at least to criticize those who appeal to it for support of their beliefs and actions.

Given the multiplicity of “gods/goddesses” spoken of by people, past and present, perhaps it would be more accurate to use the rather ugly-looking and strange-sounding word “theoilogy,” the study of the gods (since the plural of theos is theoi). Nevertheless, despite the plurality of deities spoken about by human beings, scholars continue to use the traditional term “theology” for that kind of speaking and thinking. This preliminary definition of theology will do for the time being. Later in the book we will see that some people assert that “thinking about God” is too narrow of a definition.
