This work provides information and debate on the lives and work of 50 significant Christian theologians. Divided into five sections, it covers: Christian beginnings; Middle Ages; Reformation and its aftermath; and modern theology and the 20th century. This is a overview of Christian theology from the emergence of the faith 2000 years ago to the present day. Among the figures included are Paul, Aquinas, Ockham, Luther, Kierkegaard and Bonhoeffer.
"The book's strength is its accessible format and focus, which doesn't require any background knowledge. One usually doesn't get this kind of compact, introductory information in one place. An extremely handy reference for public and academic libraries." - Library Journal
