Reviewing "Understanding Theology in 15 Minutes a Day"

"Understanding Theology in 15 Minutes a Day" by Daryl Aaron does a great job of introducing the reader to the study of Theology. Theology can be very intimidating to a new Christian or even a seasoned believer and this book takes it and divides it up into manageable sections. Each section can be read in 15 minutes and begins to tackle a specific idea pertaining to Christian theology. A few of the topics Aaron includes in the book are "Did God Really Make Everything?", "Why Should We Believe that Jesus Christ is God?", and "Is the Holy Spirit a Person or a Thing?".
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book, since Theology is usually something that takes volumes to explain. I was pleasantly surprised at how well each topic was described and how the author tried to show both sides of some of the traditionally controversial issues such a predestination and if a Christian can ever lose their salvation. It would be very easy to read one of these chapters each day and get a good introduction to each of the topics he covers. It's not meant to be an exhaustive study on any of the topics, but rather serves to whet your appetite for Theology and cause you to hunger for more and continue to study on your own. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in getting a good introduction to the study of Christian Theology.
