Historical Theology: An Introduction to Christian Theology

Historical Theology: An Introduction to Christian Theology

Gregg Allison

$65.00

Hardback
This book presents the history of various doctrines in identical order to their appearance in Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology. Rather than following the history of Christianity and learning about various doctrines as they arise, readers can trace the development of vital Christian theology topic by topic.




Most historical theology texts follow Christian beliefs chronologically, discussing notable doctrinal developments for all areas of theology according to their historical appearance. And while this may be good history, it can make for confusing theology, with the classic theological loci scattered throughout various time periods, movements, and controversies.


In Historical Theology: An Introduction to Christian Doctrine, Gregg Allison offers students the opportunity to study the historical development of theology according to a topical-chronological arrangement, setting out the history of Christian doctrine one theological element at a time. Such an approach allows readers to concentrate on one tenet of Christianity and its formulation in the early church, through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and post-Reformation era, and into the modern period.

The text includes a generous mix of primary source material as well, citing the words of Cyprian, Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Barth, and others. Allison references the most accessible editions of these notable theologians' work so that readers can continue their study of historical theology through Christian history's most important contributors.
Historical Theology: An Introduction to Christian Doctrine
, is a superb resource for those familiar with Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology or interested in understanding the development of Christian theology.

A must read. A deeper look into church history and our theology.
5 stars By Andrew, Jul 19 2018
This book is easy to read. It's chapters are moderate in size which is good. It is full of referenced works from previous theologians and loaded with Bible scriptures.

This book took me to a deeper understanding of our history and how we have the Protestant faith right now. I use this in conjunction with the Bible to reveal the delineation from our previous thought and theology of our church forefathers. 

I was really impressed on how the views of each member of our church history was historically portrayed and presented.


I totally recommend this book to any Seminary student my fellow churchman.
