This three volume series includes A History of Christian Thought: Volume 1: From the Beginnings to the Council of Chalcedon, A History of Christian Thought: Volume 2: From Augustine to the Eve of the Reformation, and A History of Christian Thought: Volume 3: From the Protestant Reformation to the Twentieth Century. These books cover the evolution of Christian thought from the birth of Christ, to the Apostles, to the early church, to the great flowering of Christianity across the world. The first volume introduces the central figures and debates culminating in the Councils of Nicea and Chalcedon, among which the theologies of the early church were hammered out. Beginning with Augustine, Volume 2 covers the flowering of Christian thought that characterized both the Latin West and the Byzantine East during the Middle Ages. The final volume begins with the towering theological leaders of the Protestant Reformation and traces the development of Christian thought through its encounter with modernity.
Excellent introduction to the history of Christianity for students and the informed layperson.
