Indeed, I would very much like to have the upcoming 5th edition of McGrath's Christian Theology An Introduction as well as current The Christian Theology Reader.  Does any one have 4th edition of his Intro and the Reader in paper form?  I'm thinking about getting the books since they are not available from Logos.

I am looking for an introductory, academic (but very readable) survey of Christian Theology.  I do have the 2nd edition of McGrath's Christian Theology Introduction from 1997.

I think this is a huge must have. Almost every theology course here in the uk has 'Christian Theology and Introduction' as required pre-reading and the reader is also an excellent resource.

I would like to have works by McGrath also.  Especially,  Christian Theology: An Introduction. First edition, 1993; second edition, 1997; third edition, 2001; fourth edition, 2006. (Oxford: Blackwell Publishing) and  The Christian Theology Reader. First edition, 1995; second edition, 2000; third edition, 2006. (Oxford: Blackwell Publishing).

Also, the following Titles by Mcrath would be good (more popular level than academic level):

The Mystery of the Cross, Zondervan, 1988.

Understanding the Trinity, Zondervan, 1988.

Understanding Jesus, Zondervan, 1987.

What Was God Doing On The Cross, Zondervan, 1992.

Also "The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Thought", ed. McGrath (Blackwell, 1993) would be good to have.

just wanting to point out that this collection not only includes the five small books from the "Truth and the Christian Imagination" series that teach theological insights by way of pieces of art, but these books are available individually as well and the one on Incarnation is over 40%-off in the current pre-Christmas sale.

Absolutely. His excellent "Christian Theology: An Introduction" (and its companion Reader) has been a key textbook for theological students in the UK for quite a few years.
