Exploring Christian Thought offers a concise introduction to influential thinkers such as Augustine, Jerome, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, Thomas a Kempis, John Calvin, William Tyndale, Teresa of Avila, Blaise Pascal, Karl Barth, Soren Kierkegaard, and many more. It also introduces important events in the church, including the creation of the creeds, schisms and controversies, and the development of theology and doctrines. Section introductions provide historical contexts. Then each entry summarizes the contributions of a thinker, council, or historic document, including key quotations from the original writings. Exploring Christian Thought is an ideal introduction to the thinkers and writings that have shaped not only Christian history, but also Western culture. - Publisher."@en ;
