About the Author

Kelly M. Kapic is professor of theological studies at Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia. He earned a Ph.D. in systematic and historical theology at King's College, University of London (United Kingdom) and an M.Div. at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. He is the author or editor of eight books, including God So Loved He Gave, Communion with God, and Mapping Modern Theology.


"[O]ne can hope that professors will assign this book to first-year seminary students. It is the perfect sort of book for the spiritual formation class that many of the SBC seminaries require, and yet even seasoned theologians will be refreshed by it. I am confident that it will be successful in awakening many from their spiritual dogmatic slumbers."--A. Blake White, Southwestern Journal of Theology, 56.2
"This book delivers on its promise to explain why and how to study theology. . . . Kapic offers much wisdom in a small package. This book could be given as a gift to someone embarking on the study of theology, used as a guide for small group study or mentoring relationships, or even chosen as a required text for an introductory theology class."--Mary L. VandenBerg, Calvin Theological Journal, April 2013
"New theologians can learn a lot from it, and if it challenges them in some places, then so much the better."--Gerald Bray, Themelios, November 2012
"This concise guide, perfect for college and seminary students, offers gentle wisdom for beginners in the field."--ByFaith Magazine, Quarter 3, 2012
"In a very short book [Kapic] draws on sources as diverse as the church fathers (Anselm, Origen of Alexandria, Augustine, Gregory Nazianzus), the writers on contemporary religion books (C.S. Lewis and Miroslav Volf), and the Book of Common Prayer used in the Episcopal Church. Worship is a central theme of the book because it is central to those who would be leaders in a church. His chapters on prayer and good knowledge of the Bible are central to teaching others how to live in and lead a church. . . . This book has appeal to anyone interested in a foundation in theology."--Publishers Weekly, August 13, 2012
