In this volume of The New Church's Teaching Series, Mark McIntosh introduces the great mysteries of the Christian faith: the doctrines of creation, revelation, incarnation, salvation, and eschatology, which are all held together by the doctrine of the Trinity. To explain these beliefs for Christians today, particularly the Trinity, McIntosh begins with what we know: the language of relationship and mutuality, of friendship and family ties.
The central theme of the book is our relationship with Jesus and our relationship with our neighbor, for such mutuality lies at the heart of every doctrine. McIntosh's starting point is the fact that every one of us is a theologian, for we are all drawn to approach the mysteries of faith with attention and love. By drawing on our common experiences as members of a community of faith, particularly through the sacraments of baptism and eucharist, he helps us to explore these mysteries for ourselves and to see how we might live them in our daily lives.
As with each book in The New Church's Teaching Series, recommended resources for further reading and questions for discussion are included.

Here's what you say about us...

Mark McIntosh is an Episcopal priest in the Diocese of Chicago and associate professor of systematic theology and spirituality at Loyola University. He is the author of Christology from Within and Mystical Theology: The Integrity of Spirituality and Theology.

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
