    1. Please can someone help me with the very concise and correct definition and meaning of THEOLOGY?

    2. How does theology fit into Christianity?

    Theology means: 1. Science of religions.
                              2. Science which speaks of religion and man's duty to Him.
                             
    The above will fit to all religions, including Christianity.

    Thanks for your fine definition. I appreciate it a lot. But your second definition: "The science that talks about religion and man's response to him" seems not quite clear to me. By this definition, is religion supposed to be a personality?

    I'll be glad to get a clarification.

    God bless!

      Sir, it is not that.  The process of man's or woman's response to Him should be taken here.

    Man's duty to "Him"--as in God, IHVH.

    "Theology"

    Theos = "god"
    Logos = "rational principle, word, study"

    study of God and all religious matters.

    "In the being there was the Word..." (logos, in the original Greek).
