From the Back Cover:

The new edition of this widely used collection of readings builds on the success of the first edition of The Christian Theology Reader. It now includes more than 300 seminal readings from the entire Christian tradition, using important sources from the patristic, medieval, Reformation, and modern periods. Each reading has been selected on the basis of audience surveys and includes a detailed individual introduction, comments, and questions.

The supporting material for every reading has been classroom tested, making this Reader highly accessible for those new to the subject. Full details of the sources of the readings are provided, and all texts are cross-referenced for ease of use. It includes a wide-range of theological and denominational interests, and topical indexes allow easy access to themes throughout Christian history. This new edition also contains an updated glossary of theological terms and details of Internet holdings of theological texts for further study.


Used alone or in conjunction with the author's bestselling textbook, Christian Theology: An Introduction, the second edition of this Reader is the essential guide to the key sources and texts available in the field. Both the author and publisher are committed to keeping these books available and regularly updated in the light of user comments and evaluations.
