One of the best ways of introducing theology is through direct student engagement with the most exciting works of contemporary religious reflection. We can learn to think theologically from the giants. Gregory Higgins' work, a fresh edition of his earlier The Tapestry of Christian Theology, does just that. Loosely arranging his work around ten key biblical themes, Higgins catches the spirit and verve of ten contemporary theologians. In successive chapters he introduces these important thinkers, the movements or schools they inspire or represent, and the overarching theological question posed by their work. This key correlation yields a pedagogical strategy that enables students not only to explore contemporary theology and think theologically but also personally to probe ten important challenges to Christian discipleship today.
