This is a history of Christian theology, that appears to be very readable. In truth, I have not really read through the whole book which I checked out of a local library. I had checked out too many books, and laid this one aside, and only did a broad brush through it. I want to get it again, maybe even own it, so I am writing this review note, to indicate my desire. I am writing this from the perspective of someone who is not Evangelical, but I believe I want to respect something that is substantially unbiased. And it is pretty well-written. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0830826955, Hardcover)

An ECPA 2003 Gold Medallion Finalist!

The story of Christian theology has often been divisive and disjointed.

Providing this companion volume to his earlier work , Roger E. Olson thematically traces the contours of Christian belief down through the ages, revealing a pattern of both unity and diversity. He finds a consensus of teaching that is both unitive and able to incorporate a faithful diversity when not forced into the molds of false either-or alternatives.

The mosaic that emerges from Olson's work displays a mediating evangelical theology that is nonspeculative and irenic in spirit and tone. Specifically written with the nonspecialist in mind, Olson has masterfully sketched out the contours of Christian faith with simplicity while avoiding oversimplification.
