In this text, Alister McGrath utilises the successful historic chapters from Christian Theology: An Introduction, Second Edition and builds on them to provide all the material that students will need to understand the development of Christian theology from its beginnings.
"This approach is very well-pitched for the intended readership, particularly those who are teaching themselves. Historical Theology is an excellent resource, both for the teacher and student." Morwenna Ludlow, St John's College, Oxford
"Perhaps for the first time an expansive and ecumenical survey of Christian Theology has been produced that can be read with the same ease as a serious but gripping novel... This book will serve as an invaluable tool: it locates theological innovation and controversy in its context-specific situation." G.W.P. McFarlane, London Bible College
"The book clearly would be useful in undergraduate courses, as well as in introductory seminary ones. McGrath's prose is clear and precise. He is very good at articulating distinctions between concepts... Historical Theology would be a valuable reference book to have in one's library. It would certainly be helpful when preparing to teach survey courses requiring a component of history of theology, especially for those periods of which one has only cursory knowledge... As one already hooked on historical theology, this reader found her interest renewed and expanded numerous times by McGrath's book. Historical Theology should be able to accomplish its primary purpose, that is, to introduce newcomers to 'historical theology as an important and interesting subject'." Jane E. Strohl, The Journal of Religion
Alister E. McGrath is Principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. Two of his previous books Christian Theology: An Introduction and Christian Theology: A Reader are now established as market leaders within the systematic theology market.
