From the Back Cover:

This popular introduction to the history of Christian thought has been thoroughly revised and expanded for a second edition. It features substantial new material, including additional coverage of orthodox theology, the Holy Spirit, and medieval mysticism, alongside new sections on liberation, feminist, and Latino theologies, as well as on the global spread of Christianity.

Covering the entire history of Christian thought, this textbook provides all the material needed for a broad understanding of Christian theological development, from the earliest days of the Church Fathers right up to the present day. The book is ordered into four distinct periods, the Patristic period, the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the Reformation and post-Reformation, and the modern period, addressing the key ideas, processes and people in each. Readers are encouraged to interact with the material through case studies and study questions at the end of each section which explore central themes, and primary texts are included to facilitate deeper understanding of the issues discussed. A set of comprehensive glossaries encompass theologians, theological developments, and important words, names, and phrases.

Meeting the demand for a vibrant, chronological historical treatment of the subject, this authoritative and accessible volume is a welcome new edition of a bestselling textbook. Additional resources to support the book are available at www.wiley.com/go/mcgrath.
