THE material in Christian Doctrine: A reader is arranged in nine chapters, each with an introductory essay and looking at a traditional aspect of doctrine. The ed-itors, Lindsey Hall, Murray Rae, and Stephen Holmes, have chosen passages from a range of authors, ancient and modern (SCM Press £35 (£31.50); 978-0-334-04345-4).

If God made everything, who made God? In And Man Created God, Robert Banks shows how the arguments have changed, and, with reference to the particular approaches of Feuerbach, Marx, Freud, and Fromm, offers a critique of past theories, and looks at what believers and unbelievers can learn from the debate (Lion, £8.99 (£8.10); 978-0-7459-5543-8).

Trilogy on Faith and Happiness brings together St Augustine's The Happy Life, Faith in the Unseen, and The Advantage of Believing. The first is translated and introduced by Roland Teske; the second is translated by Michael Campbell; and the third by Ray Kearney. Notes for the latter two are by Michael Fiedrowicz (New City Press, £10.95 (£9.85); 978-1-56548-359-0).

Another trilogy is introduced by Aidan Nichols in A Key to Balthasar. Using Balthasar's The Glory of the Lord, Theo-drama, and Theo-logic, Nichols concentrates on the three aspects of being which are the foundation of this work: beauty, goodness, and truth (Darton, Longman & Todd, £12.99 (£11.70); 978-0-232-52858-9).
