History is made up of Stories
Stories not in the sense of fictions but in the sense of narratives that recount the events, movements, ideas and lives that have shaped religions and nations.
In this panoramic work of historical theology, theologian Roger Olson vividly recounts the deeds and words of the cultists and Apostolic Fathers of the second century, the clash between the monumental theological schools of Alexandria and Antioch, the epochal division between East and West, the revolutionary advent of the Reformation, and much more - right on up to the sometimes dazzling, sometimes dismaying fallout that has continued to shake Christians through the twentieth century. Through it all Olson detects and traces a common thread: a concern for salvation, God's redemptive activity in forgiving and transforming sinful human beings.
Evenhanded, refreshingly readable, impressive in its breadth and depth, The Story of Christian Theology is poised to become a standard text in historical theology.
The Story of Christian Theology by Roger E. Olson was published by Apollos Intervarsity Press in June 1999 and is our 15366th best seller. The ISBN for The Story of Christian Theology is 9780851117737.
"The clarity of the text written in eminently readable language, together with the story's clear relevance to our life and witness today, makes the book a compelling 'read' both for the untutored lay person and the pastor who wants a refresher course ... "
"This book is indeed a 'superb resource ..'. It will be a useful guide .. for years to come."
