"This interesting volume brings together a varied group of great theologians whose ideas have shaped and enriched the life and witness of the church. Dr. Thomas provides a readable exposition of their theological ideas by keeping an extraordinary practicality. I recommend this work for both clergy and laity."

"The range of doctrines Dr. Thomas deals with is important to all students of theology in their own intellectual preparation at seminaries. I concur with the author that theological task as primary concern of the church is extremely important to strengthen its spiritual vision in an increasingly secular society. I welcome this book."

"In this collection of thoughtful, well-informed essays, Joe Thomas draws valuable insights from the work of a pleasingly broad range of well-known theologians.
