"This publication is a seminal text for the student or teacher of Christian Theology. Its readability and general presentation make it a very accessible text for those with a general interest in this area of academic endeavour. In essence this is a text which would be a useful and valuable resource for the teacher or student of theology. For school-based practitioners it is a very sound teacher reference text. It contains in one volume a very thorough treatment of the key developments in Christian Theology over the past 2000 years." Religious Education Journal of Australia
"At this time when the interest in Christianity has become global and new interpretations are on the horizon, it is good to come across a scholar who is dedicated to the teaching of Theology worldwide to let us all see for ourselves what the great western thinkers said in the past. Having successfully used McGrath’s Introduction to Christian Theology, I am pleased to see a reader of this kind allowing for the teaching of a more advanced courses where primary sources make a difference." Isabel Mukonyora, Western Kentucky University
