From the Back Cover

The culmination of a two-year collaborative effort of the entire Theology Department at the University of St. Thomas, The Christian Theological Tradition is an introduction to the whole of Christian history (in the context of the Catholic tradition)--from Genesis to Vatican II. It provides readers with the basic knowledge necessary for further study in theology and prepares them with the background and context for critical reading of primary texts. A mix of broadly-focused and narrowly-focused chapters provide socio-historical contexts for the development of religious movements and/or theological issues as well as in-depth discussions of major figures and their writings. THE OLD TESTAMENT: The Primeval Story; God's Covenant with Israel; Judges, Prophets, Kings; Second Temple Judaism. THE NEW TESTAMENT: Jesus and the Gospels; Apostolic Missions. THE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY: Christianity after the Apostles; The Age of the Imperial Church; Augustine of Hippo; Eastern Christianity; Islam; Christianity in the Early Medieval Period; Christianity in the High Middle Ages; Thomas Aquinas; Christianity in the Late Medieval Period. THE MODERN PERIOD: The Renaissance; Martin Luther; Other Protestant Reformers; The Catholic Reformation; Global Expansion and the Colonial Churches; Modern Challenges to Christianity; Christianity in the USA; Christianity and the Contemporary Situation. For anyone interested in the Christian Theological Tradition. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview April 6, 2009
This is a very readable history of the Christian faith. If you are looking for a good overview of how the Christian faith developed and splintered this is the book. I would recommend as a starting point and then diving deeper on the subjects that interest you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and Accessible ... A Hidden Treasure November 22, 2008
By RJ Buck
Format:Textbook Binding
This is perhaps the best book I have seen for getting to grips with the **fundamentals** of Christian theology, history and tradition, from the Catholic perspective.

When I was doing theology at university, I found it far more helpful than many other books. Simple without being simplistic, I felt it brought the most essential elements to the fore, in an exceptionally clear, useful and accessible way.

There appear to be numerous much more well known books (e.g. McBrien's Catholicism)of a similar nature. I find it a shame that this very fine effort does not seem so readily available to people, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Agnostic enjoying theology? January 2, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I guess you could say that I was an atheist before taking a college theology course, but now would deem myself somewhat more agnostic. It was my first time in a class of this nature, and, boy... I learned a lot with The Christian Theological Tradition guiding my studies. Highly recommended the textbook for anyone interested in a brief overview of the history, and philosophies behind modern theological thought.
