Introducing Theology to Laity
A Challenge to the Whole Church to Explore God’s NatureJohn Wesley Zwonunondiita Kurewa • November 2017
As John Kurewa and his brother talked about a tragic bus crash that had occurred nearby, his brother said, "Well, that shows when your time to die has come, there is nothing you can do about it."
Was it really God's will for all those people to die or be injured in that wreck? By together delving into the meaning of the event, and into God's nature, the author and his brother came to a more profound understanding of God's purpose regarding the events of our lives.
Challenged by their discussion, and reminded that theology is for the whole church not just clergy, the author wrote Introducing Theology to Laity to encourage all Christians to engage in the study of God.
Although written for lay people, the book doesn't water down its view of Christian theology. Instead, it explores clearly and thoroughly the doctrines of God, creation, humanity, sin, the problem of evil and God's providence, and the Holy Spirit, among others.
Introducing Theology to Laity is an invitation to all believers to dig deeper into knowing God—through study and experience. As the author says, "God is not a thing to be scientifically investigated; rather, theology investigates faith—that living relationship in God."
