Item Description...
Overview
Description What do Christians believe and why do they believe it? What are the historical roots of modern Christian doctrines, and what logical connections link them together? This concise introduction to Christian thought provides thorough yet succinct answers to these and other important questions, incorporating expanded discussions of the sacraments, the Church and the ministry, recent ecumenical movements and trends, and women's ordination. Avoiding a strict chronological approach, the author traces the development of each great issue that formed Christian theology. Questions of doctrine such as the Trinity and the Incarnation are dealt with in full. Also addressed are the important issues in natural theology such as the existence of God, miracles, freedom of the will, and the problem of evil. The text shows which issues in Christian thought constitute the "common denominators" of Christian belief, and traces the roots of Christian doctrine to their sources, explaining why certain doctrines are logically essential to Christianity and were thus adopted. By analyzing the significant issues in Christian thinking from their early formulations to contemporary re-examination, A Short History of Christian Thought demonstrates that classical Christian doctrines are reasonable articulations of basic convictions and that Christian thought is relevant to the full range of human experience. Features Completely updated text, introducing the historical roots of modern Christian doctrines and the links between them Expanded chapters on the Sacraments and Church and Ministry Revised epilogue deals with contemporary issues such as women's ordination and the relationship between Christianity and other religions

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book of overview on Christian thought  Apr 10, 2000
It really is a great one volumn overview to twenty centuries of Christian thought. About this kind of book, either over simplify or too wordy will make it useless. However, the author make a good balance of that on every topic he wrote. One of the key success is the author can masterly introduce the important ideas of every subject with limited words.

Last but not least, ever on some familiar topics, this book offers some fresh and important notes that you don't expect to be found in a overview book.
