Praise for the Print Edition

This book is not intended only for people beginning formal theological studies. Rather, Stone and Duke argue that all believers are theologians because they all have to interpret their own lives in the light of biblical and other norms . . . The authors always take great pains to explain everything, Simplicity is their goal, and they reach it.

The Christian Century

Stone and Duke have produced a readable and useful primer on theological reflection. Their clear, comprehensive method is illustrated by plenty of vignettes, examples, case studies, and diagnostic exercises. A successful introduction to the practice of theology!

—Don R. Browning, Divinity School, University of Chicago
