Item Description...
This brief tour through three thousand years of religious history shows how the Christian doctrine of God evolved in response to tensions within the insights of monotheism. The very personal, changeable, and involved God of the Hebrew Bible transformed decisively in its encounter with Greek metaphysical concepts and with the emerging trinitarian notions of the early Christian period. Capetz skillfully traces this history and shows how the tensions thus created are with us still.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good overview of historical theology  Dec 10, 2005
Especially for people just beginning to study the history of Christian thought, this is a pretty good historical overview. Capetz is usually clear and easy to understand, and he seems to have a fairly impressive knowledge of key philosophical and theological thinkers in Christian history. He's definitely working from a specific theological viewpoint, and sometimes his interpretive efforts can get in the way (his interpretation of Luther and Julian of Norwich seems a little less orthodox than these two thinkers would admit). Also, his strengths are not in biblical studies, as the brief chapters on the biblical tradition indicate. However, this is a short, concise, fairly useful rendering of Christian intellectual expression from the early church to the twentieth century.
Five BIG stars  Jun 11, 2004
This is, simply put, an excellent book, historical theology at its best. The scope is very wide, yet not at the cost of useful or thought-provoking depth on this topic - all the more remarkable in a book of 192 pages. If only more authors would think so clearly before beginning to write and remember the virtue of brevity!

Capetz has a way of re-explaining or re-examining the familiar ideas and putting them into a fresh perspective grounded in history. He clearly shows how some tenets of Christianity about God began and evolved, and does so with a fine and subtle economy of language.

A fine book, a pleasure to read and reflect on. I look forward to more from this talented author and thinker.

Outstanding Overview  Feb 8, 2004
This is an excellent example of historical theology. It ranges from the ancient Old Testament to contemporary theology and identifies with precision the twists and turns that make up the Christian theological traditions. Capetz covers an amazing sweep of history in this brief book and he make complex thought accessible to academics and lay people, alike. This would be a great text for a church book study. And, it makes a great refresher course for those of us whose Divinity School theology courses are slipping from memory.
