About This Book
Anyone who is interested in constructive theology needs a knowledge of the history of Christian theology. In succession to the classic History of Christian Doctrine by G. P. Fisher, Professor Cunliffe-Jones has brought together a team of experts in the various periods to provide a new and comprehensive survey of the field.All the great themes, the Fathers, the Heretics of the long story here find their due place, from sub-apostolic Christianity to Vatican II. Also featured are the contribution of Orthodox theology to the whole development, the complex problems of the pre-Reformation period and the troubled modern period with its new perspectives of Church and society and its deep underlying malaise. Includes contributions from G. W. H. Lampe, Kallistos Ware, David Knowles, E. Gordon Rupp, Benjamin Drewery, Basil Hall, T. H. L. Parker, H. F. Woodhouse, R. Buick Knox and John H. S. Kent.
