"In contemporary society where fewer persons are biblically literate or versed in church creeds, Bradley
Hanson has crafted an open and accessible Introduction to Christian Theology that does not require an
extensive prior knowledge of the tradition. Not afraid of combining experience with doctrine, he meets the
learners where they are, helping them to wrestle with their own issues and faith commitments."
— Letty M. Russell, Yale University Divinity School
"Bradley Hanson's work wears its learning lightly and its faith openly. Clearly, indeed, crisply written,
Introduction to Christian Theology should find wide ecumenical acceptance among undergraduate teachers
and their students. It would also be an excellent first text for those embarking on the study of theology in
adult education settings."
— Lawrence S. Cunningham, University of Notre Dame
