Review quote

"What I find attractive about this book is that it lends itself easily to the interdisciplinary research, because of its historical survey character." - Michael J. Cahill, Duquesne University"I believe what makes The Christian Theological Tradition a better text is the way that it was developed a collaborative effort of experts who are practitioners in the classroom, and with feedback from students. The text thereby achieves both expansiveness and depth that others do not have and, perhaps most important, it is student-friendly." - Joseph A. Currie, Fordham Universityshow more
