    1. For one of my Spring 2016 Brite Courses, "Church's Educational Ministry" - From the publisher: By exploring five common Christian perspectives ("theological worlds"), this volume helps readers understand the basis of their own Christian attitudes, identify the sources of their confusions about life and the church, and come to a deeper appreciation of the assumptions and motivations of others. Author W. Paul Jones demonstrates that each of the five "theological worlds" has a legitimate basis in b [...]

    3. I had to read this book for a theology of the developing person class. I do not consider myself Christian, but I found a lot of value in this book!
