Overview


Christian Thought: A Brief History is an authoritative chronological account of 2,000 years of Christian thinking, charting the path Christian thinkers have taken in their search for answers to some of the most basic questions concerning existence and creation.

In thirteen chapters, written by distinguished theologians and church historians from both sides of the Atlantic, the reader is taken from Pre-Constantinian times to the end of the twentieth century. It is a journey not only through time, but through different traditions of thought--Eastern Orthodox thinking, Armenian and Syriac thought, and Byzantine theology--as well as Western traditions. There is no one single strand of thought that can be identified as "Christian thinking." The history of "Christian thinking" is made up of many strands, which, even though they may be said to converge at the same point, are each distinct in their own right. The chapters in this book do not aim merely to explain or tell the story of "thought," they reflect the thinking of the scholars who wrote them and aim to provoke the reader into further study.
