In this five-volume opus Jaroslav Pelikan traces the development of Christian doctrine from the first century to the twentieth:
These five volumes trace the history and thought of the visible church from 100 AD into the 20th Century. Distinctive in his awareness of both eastern and western traditions, Pelikan draws deeply on primary sources. The result is perhaps the most impressive history of doctrine yet completed. For its scope as well as its depth of research, this is rewarding reading.
Pelikan’s The Christian Tradition [is] a series for which they must have coined words like ’magisterial’.
—Martin Marty, Commonweal
Pelikan’s book marks not only the end of a dazzling scholarly effort but the end of an era as well. There is reason to suppose that nothing quite like it will be tried again.
—Harvey Cox, Washington Post Book World
