Product Description

William C. Placher and Derek Nelson compile significant passages written by the most important Christian thinkers, from the early church through the Middle Ages, and up to the beginning of the sixteenth century. Illustrating the major theologians, controversies, and schools of thought, Readings in the History of Christian Theology is an essential companion to the study of church history and historical theology. Excerpts are preceded by the editors' introductions, allowing the book to stand alone as a coherent history.

This revised edition expands the work's scope with the addition of many new texts, especially those from the voices of women and others who have been marginalized from the theological tradition. This valuable resource brings together the writings of major theologians from the church's history for a new generation of students.

Editorial Reviews

"This thoughtful collection of works from the Early Church to the Late Middle ages provides an excellent introduction to the history of Christianity. This diverse anthology includes selections from normative and non-normative authors, from well-known and lesser known writers, from men and women, from theologians and mystics. The insightful chapter introductions and brief summaries of each reading make this a reliable guide for the student and teacher alike."
—Carl Beckwith, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University
