Overview

This Reader is designed as a comparison to the editor's highly successful Christian Theology: An Introduction. It makes available some 280 seminal texts from the entire Christian tradition from Ignatius of Antioch to the Catechism of the Catholic Church (1994), cross-referenced and indexed for ease of use. All readings prior to 1800 have been specially translated for the purposes of this reader, to ensure consistency of translation and ease of reading in English. Every effort has been made to ensure that the work is as user-friendly as possible, making as few demands as possible of its users. Each chapter includes an introduction outlining the main historical and theological issues, and identifying key issues and thinkers. Each individual reading is prefaced by an introduction, alerting the reader to its importance and context, and followed where necessary by notes on translation and interpretation. The work also includes a full glossary of theological terms and biographical details of theologians cited, as well as suggestions for further reading.
