Introductory Reading List

I’ve recently been reading a series of bloggers that have been posting what they consider to be “essential” introductory reading for people who want to enter into theological studies. So, I thought I would post a list of my own and, to the best of my ability, I tried to keep it short and easily readable.

1. Is There Meaning In This Text? by Kevin J. VanHoozer. [Hermeneutics]

2. Christian Origins and the Question of God: Part I (The New Testament and the People of God) and Part II (Jesus and the Victory of God) by N.T. Wright. [NT Intro/Gospels]

3. The Theology of Paul the Apostle by James D.G. Dunn. [Paul]

4. Theology of the Old Testament by Walter Brueggemann. [OT]

5. The Nature of Doctrine by George Lindbeck. [Intro to Theology]

6. The Trinity and the Kingdom by Jurgen Moltmann. [Trinity/Doctrine of God]

7. The Shape of the Church to Come by Karl Rahner. [Ecclesiology]

8. On Being a Christian by Hans Kung. [Anthropology?]

9. The Peaceable Kingdom by Stanley Hauerwas. [Ethics]

10. The Story of Christianity by Justo Gonzalez. [History]
