Zondervan's Theologian Trading Cards make learning about Christianity's most notable figures both informative and fun! The set includes theologians, mystics, ministers, missionaries, and evangelists from all across church history and from every theological/ecclesiastical tradition.
The back of each card features a brief biography, a short statement about the theologian's significance, and a very brief summary of their most influential works. The front of each card contains a photo of the theologian, the theologian's name, and the "team" name and the colors of the team to which they have been assigned.
There are 15 teams, each representing a particular theological tradition or historical era. For example, Martin Luther and Dietrich Bonhoeffer both "play" for the Wittenberg Whistle Blowers, appropriately reflecting both Luther's Reformation and Bonhoeffer's political resistance to the Third Reich.
Super-gloss covering and thick-stock paper make the cards durable and ideal for heavy usage or as collectibles. Useful as educational tools, cards are sure to help teachers of all types bring the church's history to life while providing succinct but accurate information.

Patterned after the all-American baseball card, Theologian Trading Cards provide essential information about the major teachers, leaders, and trouble-makers throughout the history of the Church. At a glance you will have access to information regarding 288 important figures in church history, including when and where they lived, their contribution to the church, and enduring significance.
Each figure has been placed on the roster of one of 15 theological or historical teams; this aids readers in discovering the practical, chronological, and theological connections between figures. Examples include the Orthodoxy Dodgers (heretics); St. James Padres (Church Fathers of the Patristic Era); and the Wittenberg Whistle-blowers (Early Reformers and later Lutheran Church).
Theologian Trading Cards are perfect for students taking a church history course who want a memorable study aid to help them retain important information about select individuals in the church, as well as non-students who just want to learn or want to begin a hobby of card collecting.
