Most approaches to historical theology follow Christian beliefs chronologically, discussing notable doctrinal developments for all areas of theology according to their historical appearance. And while this may be good history, it can make for confusing theology, with the classic theological loci scattered throughout various time periods, movements, and controversies.
The Historical Theology Pack by Gregg Allison offers students the opportunity to study the historical development of theology according to a topical-chronological arrangement, setting out the history of Christian doctrine one theological element at a time. Such an approach allows learners to concentrate on one tenet of Christian theology and its formulation in the early church, through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and post-Reformation era, and into the modern period.
The Historical Theology Pack includes:
- Historical Theology, a bestselling textbook arranged in a topical-chronological manner and including a generous mix of primary source material, citing the words of Cyprian, Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Barth, and others.
- Historical Theology Video Lectures, featuring a video lecture for each of the 33 chapters in the textbook
The Historical Theology Pack contains everything you need to gain an in-depth understanding of history of Christian doctrine, whether you are enrolled in a class or learning on your own.
