Mark McIntosh is an Episcopal priest in the Diocese of Chicago. He is associate professor of systematic theology and spirituality at Loyola University in Chicago, and the author of Christology From Within and, most recently, Mystical Theology: The Integrity of Spirituality and Theology. He assists part-time in his parish and is a regular speaker at quiet days and retreats.
Defining theology as `the struggle to put what has been understood
in prayer into words' (p. xi), McIntosh shows that theology is a
natural part of every Christian life. * Anglican Theological Review
Mysteries of Faith introduces the Christian doctrines of creation, revelation, incarnation, salvation, and eschatology-all held together by the fundamental doctrine of the Trinity. . . . [This book] is an ideal introduction to exploring these essential concepts by drawing on our common experiences as members of a community of faith, especially as reflected through the sacraments of baptism and eucharist, to understand how we might live them in our daily lives. * Midwest Book Review *
Three strengths mark this volume. The teaching is orthodox; it is clear; and it speaks to the heart, claiming the believer as a whole person who is invited to think as a Christian but also to worship and live as a Christian. * Virginia Seminary Journal *
Although part of a series for Anglicans, Mysteries of Faith provides an engaging, lucid, and accessible examination of [Christianity's] central doctrines that should benefit members of other denominations as well. It would be hard to conceive of a better treatment written for laypersons, or one that makes the mysteries of faith more real and relevant * Christian Library Journal *
