We often hear of different types of theology or the names of certain thinkers uttered yet do not dare inquire further out of fear of being unable to make sense of it all, or because we simply have no clue where to start. Many of us at Christianity Now have been lucky enough to study theology and philosophy of religion in an academic setting where those who knew far more than us were able to point us in the right directions and help us understand these works in ways we would not have been able to otherwise.
