This comprehensive survey is the ideal introduction to the thinkers and writers who have shaped Christian history and Western Culture - as well as to the major works and movements they generated. From the first century to the 20th, from Palestine via Europe to Asia and Africa, the book covers over 125 people, documents and councils. Each thinker is introduced with a brief summary, and key quotations are included from their work. This completely revised edition has been expanded to include introductions to more recent theologians such as John Hick, George Lindbeck and John Milbank.
