Product Description

Splendid, one-of-a-kind reference work on a gamut of thinkers and topics theological

Covering everything from "Abba" to "Zwingli," The Thiselton Companion to Christian Theology offers a comprehensive, coherent account of topics and thinkers in Christian theology, all written by widely respected theologian Anthony Thiselton.

Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge, gained from fifty-plus years of teaching and research, Thiselton provides some six hundred articles on various aspects of theology throughout the centuries. The entries include both short descriptive surveys and longer essays of original assessment on central theological topics - atonement, Christology, God, Holy Spirit - and on such theologians as Aquinas, Augustine, Barth, Calvin, Kung, Luther, Moltmann, and Pannenberg. The book also includes a helpful time chart of all the theologians discussed.

The Thiselton Companion to Christian Theology is bound to be a go-to reference for pastors, students, teachers, and theologians everywhere.

Publisher's Description

Covering everything from “Abba” to “Zwingli,” The Thiselton Companion to Christian Theology offers a comprehensive account of a wide sweep of topics and thinkers in Christian theology. Written entirely by eminent scholar Anthony Thiselton, the book features a coherence lacking in most multiauthored volumes.

Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge, gained from fifty-plus years of study and teaching, Thiselton provides some six hundred articles on various aspects of theology throughout the centuries. The entries comprise both short descriptive surveys and longer essays of original assessment on central theological topics -- such as atonement, Christology, God, and Holy Spirit -- and on such theologians as Aquinas, Augustine, Barth, Calvin, Küng, Luther, Moltmann, and Pannenberg. The book also includes a helpful time chart dating all of the theologians discussed and highlighting key events in Christian history; select reading suggestions conclude each of the longer entries.

Equally valuable for research and teaching, The Thiselton Companion to Christian Theology will be a go-to reference for pastors, students, teachers, and theologians everywhere.

Author Bio

Anthony C. Thiselton is professor emeritus of Christian theology at the University of Nottingham, England.

Editorial Reviews

The Living Church
"Has the flavor of mature wine, and indeed of a wine crafted through years of engagement not only with the fruits of theological learning but also with the fermentation of human encounter and pastoral care. . . . A useful tool."

Mission Today
"Thiselton has done it again! This book is simply a brilliant feat of scholarship!"

Spirit & Life
"Well-researched, coherent, concise, and highly readable, this authoritative volume makes an excellent theological dictionary or encyclopedia."

John Barton
— University of Oxford
"This is a tour de force by one of Britain's leading theological scholars. It offers an authoritative guide to every part of theology and is accessibly written, with excellent suggestions for further reading. Invaluable."

Kevin J. Vanhoozer
— Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Anthony Thiselton's previous publications give sufficient proof of his prowess as a New Testament scholar, biblical commentator, and expert in philosophical hermeneutics. In an era of increasing specialization, few people are as qualified to speak authoritatively across the theological disciplines. ThisCompanion gives us the benefit of Thiselton's comprehensive learning in the form of an A-Z theological dictionary. There are not many people whose opinion about every theological thing under the sun I would want to seek out; Anthony Thiselton is on that short list."

David Fergusson
— University of Edinburgh
"Displaying remarkable breadth and scholarly erudition, this substantial reference book offers an invaluable guide to theology. Its range, clarity, and points of entry for further study are all highly commendable. Teachers and students of theology are indebted to Thiselton for his herculean labor."

Choice
"This will be an eminently valuable book for scholars and students, appreciated for the clear writing and succinct summaries of topics and thinkers. . . . Highly recommended."

Journal of Spiritual Formation and Soul Care
"A comprehensive resource for issues related to the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, particularly when it comes to those 'hot-button' issues that often divide churches, denominations, and movements rather than unite. . . . Spiritual formation researchers in particular will receive much from Thiselton's discussions."

    What is called a theological companion turns out to be an astute theological dictionary from a seasoned theologian. The scope of this fine volume is so massive that it is hard to believe that one writer gave us the entire volume. Most dictionaries are compiled by a host of scholars who can even contradict themselves across entries, but here we have a unified approach to all things theological.

    The book begins with a timeline of theologians to help you place the many theologians that will receive a biographic entry in the volume. That is a great help in seeing who was contemporary with each other. Next, there is a list of entries which is much easier than flipping through the large volume itself. Still, the majority of the book is a-to-z entries.

    In addition to influential theologians, he gives almost every theological word imaginable whether common like justification, or biblical like abba, or of a modern scholarly bend like open theism, or even esoteric like womanism. Exhaustive is a fair description.

    The articles are of various lengths following a logical approach to their complexity and importance. You might occasionally disagree with his choice, or find something missing like the New Perspective on Paul, but it is broad enough to cover most everything you might need in such a volume. You might even disagree on a theological conclusion, but you will never find him careless, naive, or harshly dogmatic. His lifetime in theology is apparent.

    Quite simply, I must rate this a winner and consider it a jewel to have on your shelves.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.

    A superb entry into the dictionary/compendium/companion genre. This is readable, incisive, current and comprehensive. It includes excellent guides to current and classic readings. And it encompasses a truly international field of scholars and authors. Further, being a single-author work it is stunning.

    This work will earn my deepest recommendation to my theology students. Unreservedly recommended.
