At the heart of Christianity, bridging the gap between theology and the lived Christian life, is a radical love. The Christian faith is something people practise. The Church prays, listens to the Scriptures, celebrates the sacraments, cares for the suffering, and liberates the oppressed. This is where the task of theology begins. Each chapter in this book engages central issues of theology but remains focused on the Christian life. Although it is a book about doctrine — Christian teaching — it insists that one cannot present a doctrine of the Trinity, or Incarnation, or anything else in the abstract. Teaching divorced from everyday life is not Christian teaching. This does not mean the book is primarily 'practical' as opposed to 'theological'. It is an invitation to Christian theology that refuses to separate the two. The aim of this book is not to satisfy the intellect, but to train its readers through approachable theological teaching to live the love that Christian theology proclaims. Refusing to relegate doctrine to the abstract, divorced from every day life, this book aims, through approachable theological teaching, to train its readers to live the love and mercy that the message of Christian theology presents to us.
