Theology—the attempt to come to a deeper, more faithful understanding of one’s encounter with God—is something to which all Christians are called. In Learning Theology, Amos Yong invites the reader to lay claim to that calling and to see it as yet another opportunity to love God.
Written for those taking their first course in the subject, this book introduces the foundational sources and tasks of theology. It asks what difference theology makes in our lives, how it can influence the way we write and study, and how we understand other forms of learning as part of the Spirit’s leadership. Yong encourages the reader to see all of life through the lens of faith, and Learning Theology offers tools to more thoughtfully and faithfully perform that task.
World-renowned New Testament scholar offers a straightforward examination of what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit.
Who exactly is the Holy Spirit? What does he do in our lives? How can we know him more deeply, and is it possible to tap into his power? Should we pray to the Holy Spirit? Is it possible to be aware of his promptings and speaking into our lives? Dr. Scot McKnight answers these questions and more in this comprehensive examination of what the Bible says about this divinely important, but often confusing member of the Trinity.
This is the third work in a three-part series examining some of the more mysterious components of the Christian faith. Scot’s The Heaven Promise examines the afterlife. The Hum of Angels elucidates the Bible’s teaching on God’s supernatural messengers and protectors. Now, Open to the Spirit examines the most mysterious member of the Trinity.
Scot blogs at Patheos, a large multi-perspective blog format. It serves many influential voices from many faith and non-faith traditions. Scot’s blog draws primarily a Christian readership; one that is looking for intellectual engagement and thoughtful analysis of Scripture, Theology, and Culture.

While books about doctrine supply description and analysis of the classic questions of the faith, they often miss the contemporary questions on the minds of readers. This book fills that gap. Organized around the key topics of Jesus, the Bible, church, the Holy Spirit, evil, salvation and hope, the sometimes-provocative questions on these topics aim to ring true with the lived experience of real people. Even more, they look to inspire reflection, debate, disagreement, and above all, engagement in what the Christian faith is all about.
A caveman finds a book that helps him find meaning to that which surrounds him. The Caveman’s Book is a Christian allegory that delves into the intricacies of life: love, loneliness, and loss. This book will help you explore the questions of life in a different way, while always keeping the solid foundation in which the Christian faith is founded: belief in Christ.
