Documents of the Christian Church

Full Product Description

'That invaluable Christian reference book.' Church Times 'Covering the whole range of Christian thought, it is specially valuable to the young student.' Church Quarterly Review This selection of writings from the most important moments in the history of Christianity has become established as a classic work. Now incorporating a wealth of new material, this new edition will be an essential reference source for anyone interested in the Christian Church. While retaining the original material selected by Henry Bettenson, Chris Maunder has added a substantial section of more recent writings. These illustrate the Second Vatican Council; the theologies of liberation; Church and State from 'Thatcher's Britain' to Communist Eastern Europe; Black, feminist, and ecological theology; ecumenism; and inner-faith dialogue. The emphasis on moral debate in the contemporary Churches is reflected in selections dealing with, for example, homosexuality, divorce, AIDS, and in-vitro fertilization. Documents of the Christian Church thus provides insights into the whole 2000 years of Christian theological and political debate.

Documents of the Christian Church by Bettenson was published by Oxford University Press in June 1999 and is our 20113th best seller. The ISBN for Documents of the Christian Church is 9780192880710.
