This book outlines the answers to three questions crucial to understanding the Christian tradition: first, what are the core Christian doctrines? What ideas and convictions form the heart of Christian identity? Second, where did these doctrines come from? What are the historical contexts in which they first rose to prominence? How have they developed across the history of the church? Finally, what do these doctrines mean today? What claims do they continue to place on Christian belief and practice in the twenty-first century? Written with the clarity and insight for which Gonzalez is famous, "A Short History of Christian Doctrine" will serve the needs of students in church history, historical theology, and systematic theology classes in college/university settings, as well as seminaries/theological schools.
