In Historical Theology In-Depth, David Beale explores the doctrines, movements, and heresies that have defined Christianity's history and continue to shape theology today. Volume 1 examines the Greek apologists, the theological traditions of Alexandria and Carthage, the battlefields of the ecumenical councils, and the writings of Irenaeus, Tertullian, Augustine, and others from the first century to the early Reformation. Volume 2 covers the writings of reformers, such as Luther, Melanchthon, Zwingli, and Calvin; the development of Arminianism and Calvinism; the characteristics of American denominations, with reference to key theological figures in each period; and historical views on specific doctrines and societal issues. This is an excellent introduction to the study of historical theology, providing a comprehensive guide to 2,000 years of doctrine.
