Full Description


An authoritative layperson's guide to understanding God A mainstay of Canadian television, Rev. James Cantelon has long had a reputation for making matters of faith relevant and alive to a mass audience. In Theology for the Non-Theologian, he promises to answer the questions of a newer generation of spiritual seekers, addressing such issues as the nature and existence of God, God's plan, and the why of Creation. Not simply focused on Christian theology, the book describes the godheads of the world's major religions and movements. With a short overview of each book of the Bible, as well as real-life examples that complement the parables, this new edition of a popular earlier edition promises to bring understanding to the many who wish to know and live by divine grace. James Cantelon (Toronto, ON, Canada) is the author of When God Stood Up: A Christian Response to AIDS in Africa (0-470-83927-9), from Wiley, and is the President and founder of the charity Visionledd.
