Theology for Beginners is one of the most outstanding presentations of the central doctrines of the Christian faith ever penned. Frank Sheed begins with reasons to study theology and the rewards that accompany such a pursuit. After showing how God is Spirit, he examines God’s infinity and man’s creation from nothing, and then moves on to the Trinity, the Fall, the Incarnation and Redemption, the Mystical Body, Grace and the Sacraments, and the Last Things. For those to whom these doctrines once seemed formidable, Sheed’s is a fresh voice of lucid and carefully reasoned prose. To read Theology for Beginners is to have one’s mind awakened to the spiritual realities at the center of human existence. (From the Publisher’s Website)
