Christian Thought Revisited

“Every so often a book comes along that sorts through complex material in a lucid and engaging way. Niebuhr’s Christ and Culture does this, as does Dulles’s Models of the Church. González’s Christian Thought Revisited, to my mind, joins this company. This gem of a book has been required reading in my classes for years and always get rave reviews from students. This new edition is most welcome!” –Stephen B. Bevans, SVD, Catholic Theological Union “Few other books have been able to show as clearly or concisely both the diversity of early Christian thought and the coherence of various types of Christian theology across the ages. Justo L. González has a gift for making history accessible and relevant to the life of Christian churches.” –Dale T. Irvin, New York Theological Seminary “This imaginative typology provides a framework that makes sense of the theological landscape of Christian history and contemporary conversations. Its reissue in a revised edition is most welcome.” –Sharon H. Ringe, Wesley Theological Seminary Christian Thought Revisited offers an overview of three basic models of theology in Western Christian history.  From the works of Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria and Origen, and Irenaeus of Lyon come the models of moral theology, metaphysical theology, and pastoral theology. This categorization helps students understand the validity and application of all three models in the study of theology today. González has updated the discussion of each model to include contemporary issues and concerns.

Publicado por primera vez en 1989, Christian Thought Revisited ofrece un vistazo a los tres modelos básicos de teología en el cristianismo occidental. El propósito de esta categorización es de ayudar a los estudiantes entender la validez y aplicación de los tres modelos en el estudio de teología hoy. González ha actualizado las discusiones en cada modelo para incluir preocupaciones modernas.
