Historical Theology: An Introduction to Christian Doctrine (Gregg R. Allison)
Most historical theology studies follow Christian beliefs chronologically, discussing notable doctrinal developments for all areas of theology according to their historical appearance. While this may be good history, it can make for confusing theology, with the classic theological doctrines scattered throughout various time periods, movements, and controversies.
In the Historical Theology course, Gregg Allison offers you the opportunity to study the historical development of theology by a topical-chronological arrangement, setting out the history one doctrine at a time.
This approach allows you to concentrate on one tenet of Christianity and its formulation in the early church through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and post-Reformation era, and finally into the modern period.
