Publisher's Summary

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Historical Theology: Audio Lectures includes high-quality live recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources. 

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 Historical Theology: Audio Lectures, Gregg Allison offers listeners 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 listeners to concentrate on one tenet of Christianity and its formulation in the early church, through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and post-Reformation era, and into the modern period. 

Historical Theology: Audio Lectures is a superb resource for students and self-learners wanting to better understand the development of Christian theology.

more of a systematic theology

I was hoping for more of a walk through history, and how theology developed. however, Allison goes through each major doctrine in a systematic way, defines it, and then usually gives a very brief overview of how the doctrine has developed over time. I wish he spent more time in the history.

Class Review for a Bible Study

Great way to get through this book

great chapter breakdown, easy to follow, conversational style, enjoyed the content except for the fact that some theological positions should have been refuted in the course of discussing their development rather than leaving the reader wondering
