Historical Theology, An Introduction to the History of Christian Thought by Alister E
This book aims to introduce you to historical theology as an important and interesting
subject. It is also a very large topic; to do justice to it, at least five substantial volumes would
be required. This book is an introduction to its aims and themes, which aims to pack as
much useful information into a single volume as is realistically possible, using approaches
which have been tried and tested in classrooms in Europe, North America, and Australasia.
The book makes use of some material already presented in the best-selling work Christian
Theology: An Introduction , which has been reconfigured for the specific purpose of
introducing students to the discipline of historical theology. Although much new material
has been added and some existing material rewritten, the basic approach and some contents
of this earlier work have been retained.
