Publisher's Description

A Concise History of Christian Thought offers a succinct, readable survey of key Christian thinkers and significant theological developments from the church's inception to the present. In addition to surveying over one hundred important Christian thinkers from Justin Martyr to Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), the book also covers major creeds, councils, and documents. Representative extracts allow the reader to hear from each of the key thinkers in his or her own words.

After having sold more than 50,000 copies in its earlier editions, the current edition has been refined and updated throughout and includes new material on key contemporary thinkers. It will appeal to church leaders, interested laity, and students.

    This text was required for a college course. The author takes every opportunity to take a shot at Catholic and Orthodox Christians. The heavy Protestant bias makes it an arduous read for anyone of the previously mentioned faith(s). On a positive note, the book covers a lot of ground and doesn't bog down.

    Lane has succeeded in providing a concise history of Christian doctrinal development that will serve well as either a textbook or reference for students and scholars alike. Although not as detailed or entertaining as Olson (The Story of Christian Theology), Lane tends to be clearer and more reliable in his assessments. This work would be an excellent companion to Cairns (Christianity through the Centuries).

    I find this book to be very helpful, thus far, in understanding the evolution of Christian thought. The segments on the various thinkers mentioned are brief, but I am getting the general gist of the movement of thought quite well. The book is written with a slight protestant view I believe, though I think Lane does a good job of keeping it level, as any book on the history of the church will have a slant.
