Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Van Voorst (Western Theological Seminary) presents here together primary source material, introductory notes, and practical guidelines for reading the primary sources. Organized chronologically, the chapters present material from various periods of Christian history. The readings from each time period are grouped into five categories: people and events of influence, institutional and church organization, teachings of Christianity, personal and social ethics, and ecumenism and Christianity's relation to other faiths.
