Understanding Christian Doctrine introduces Christian theology in an accessible, informed, and systematic way. * A lively introduction to the central beliefs of Christianity, assuming no prior knowledge of theology and Christian doctrine * Explores doctrines such as incarnation, the Trinity, sin, life after death, and the end of the world, and growth areas such as spirituality * Encourages and shows readers how to take a position on these theological issues * Tackles questions that newcomers find particularly perplexing about the Christian worldview, including religion and science, religious pluralism, and the problem of evil * Includes numerous student-friendly features, including useful timelines, brief vignettes of major theologians, and a glossary * Written by internationally-regarded theologian, Ian S. Markham, who is the author of a number of textbooks in religion and theology.

"A book which can be commended for a number of reasons. It is an invitation for the reader to engage and discuss the questions of theology, almost a pilgrimage to examine options and learn how to evaluate them." (Expository Times, February 2009) "Markham offers undergraduate students and interested laypeople an accessible and informative introduction to Christian theology ... .[The book] successfully alerts readers both to the major thinkers and to the issues involved."
