This volume . . .which consists of eight chapters which look at some of the central theologians of the ancient and medieval eras. Bradley Green (editor)While writing his dissertation--doing lots of reading of Augustine--I found that I was learning to think theologically by "watching" Augustine think theologically. From this experience of learning how to think theologically by reading Augustine came the idea for the book--a book that would look at key ancient and medieval theologians, and that might help readers to learn how to think theologically by seeing how key theologians think and theologize. Green edited the volume and contributed the chapter on Augustine. Other contributors are Brian Shelton, Bryan Litfin, Gerald Bray, Carl Beckwith, Robert Letham, David Hogg and Mark Elliott.^
IrenaeusTertullianOrigenAthanasiusThe CappadociansAugustineAnselmAquinasThe best of evangelical theology has always paid attention to the key thinkers, issues and doctrinal developments in the history of the church. What God has done in the past is key to understanding who we are and how we are to live.The purpose of this volume is threefold: to introduce a selection of key early and medieval theologians, to strengthen the faith of evangelical Christians by helping them to understand the riches of the church's theological reflection, and to help them learn how to think theologically.These essays offer insightful analysis of and commentary on eight key theologians, from Irenaeus to Aquinas, along with critical assessment of how evangelicals should view and appropriate the insights of these thinkers. The intention of the contributors is to, as Augustine says, cultivate minds "fired by the grace of our creator and savior" so that we might think well and rightly about our good and great God and live in his light.
