Whether you realise it or not, you are the beneficiary of centuries of careful study and reflection on God's Word. The writings and teachings of figures from the past are crucial to what the church believes today. But just like intriguing guests of honour at a dinner party, these theologians can be intimidating to get to know.
Introducing you to the lives and thought of figures such as the Apostolic Fathers, Justin Martyr, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Karl Barth and others, this book makes the writings of these significant theologians accessible and understandable. It will open up for you the riches of church history and enlarge your vision of God and His plan for the world.
"Michael Reeves helps readers engage with great Christian thinkers of the past in a critical and appreciative manner. The educated layperson and the thoughtful church leader will find themselves informed and edified by this book." - Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary
