Review:

"The extracts [here] have been clearly selected, and represent a good mix of classical and more modern writers, with an occasional rather less obvious choice ... .[The extracts] selected here fit well with the themes of the companion work, as one would expect." (Theological Book Review, 2008) "Ample readings from the patristic, medieval, and Reformation eras give the reader a sense of the depth and breadth of each theme across the ages. Although brief, the volume packs surprising diversity into its pages: Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant; feminist and liberationist; revisionist and conservative. It is hard to imagine a better basic introduction to Western Christian theology." (Religious Studies Review, September 2008) "The prolific Oxford professor has added to his bibliographic tapestry...a good resource and [it] can be used effectively in an introductory course on theology." (Southern Baptist Journal of Theology)
