The Potted Guide to Theology

The Potted Guide to Theology


Tony Gray and Steve English


The Guide is the premier illustrated whistle-stop tour of Christian theology through the ages. Are you confused by Calvin? Are you baffled by Bonhoeffer? Do you get in a tangle with Tertullian? Does Kierkegaard drive you krazy? Then this is the book for you! Short, simple, and seriously interesting. If you are a busy person who needs to brush up on 2,000 years of Christian thought (but sadly do not have 2,000 years spare in which to do so) then dip into THE POTTED GUIDE TO THEOLOGY. Within minutes you’ll be able to bluff your way through a conversation with the vicar and within a day you’ll be a serious candidate for the job yourself! Bursting with wisdom, insight and lots of illustrations, THE POTTED GUIDE TO THEOLOGY is the must-have book for every wanna-be theologian.

Tony Gray did his DPhil in Theology at Oxford and currently runs a publishing consultancy in Oxfordshire, Words by Design. He has edited, written and ghost-written a number of books.

Steve English is a full-time freelance cartoonist who illustrates for a number of national comics and magazines including the Horrible Histories and Horrible Science collections. He also writes and illustrates his own cartoon strips which are published in Britain and abroad.

‘This book is sure to be a tonic for any theological faint-heart.’

Professor Paul Helm, Regent College, Vancouver

‘I didn’t think it could be done, but it is great fun, and informative too.’

Professor Keith Ward, former Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Oxford
