A brief review of Readings in the History of Christian Theology (vol. 1) ed. William C. Placher

Jump to Comments

Required for my Historical Theology class.  It can’t be easy to attempt to distill the primary sources of Christian writing from the generation following the apostles to the eve of the reformation into a 150 page anthology.  Given the difficulty of the task, Placher does an admirable job choosing excerpts from some of the most important works of Christian theology, organizing them and catching enough of the writers in their own words that you can get a taste of who they were and what they believed.  Grade: A-
