The history of Christian theology can be a daunting, even forbidding field for the novice, who sees neither the need for nor pertinence of rummaging around dusty old texts. This people-friendly volume, a full-scale reader in the history of Christian theology, offers an easy, non-threatening, occasionally humorous yet quite thorough entry into Christianity's central texts from the Apostolic Fathers to Mary Daly. It is also enlivened by dozens of cartoons by Rich Diesslin. Highly accessible introductions to five periods precede brief introductions to and texts from more than fifty key thinkers. The texts highlight perennial themes and questions in Christian tradition, especially the meaning and importance of Jesus, challenges to the institutional church, tensions of faith and reason, spirituality, and the Christian quest for social justice. The new edition, half again as large as the original, adds significant work from the Cappadocian Fathers and the Christological controversialists, the Franciscan tradition, the Radical and English reforms, and deeper coverage of twentieth-century theologians. With learning aids, research-paper suggestions and guide, and glossary.

Endorsements

"Users of this anthology need not fear about losing their way on the 'Journey': Anderson is a reliable guide, proving well–chosen texts, accurate introductions, penetrating study questions, and a helpful glossary."
—Denis R. Janz

History of Christianity

"A textual tour of the entire theological tradition that stops at all the must–see literary locales, as well as lesser known, but fascinating, destinations. The editors complement each text with an insightful introduction and probing study questions. This collection is an invaluable resource for any introductory course on the history of Christian thought and doctrine."
—John E. Thiel
Professor of Religious Studies
Fairfield University


"As a teacher of a required survey course—'The Christian Tradition'—I long have sought a primary–sources anthology of reasonable length (and cost) that provides excerpts from key figures and sets them in dialog with one another to model exactly the kind of cross–era conversation that must continue today. The revised edition of William Anderson's A Journey through Christian Theology looks to fit the bill nicely."
—George C. Heider
