Christian Belief: A Short History for Today
Oxford University Press, 2006 - 230 pages
This accessible book offers just such a map. It provides a concise guide to the conflicted history of Christian thought on such topics as the nature of God, free will, evil, death, the afterlife, and heaven. Throughout, Evans makes clear the ongoing relevance of these debates to modern believers. The book will appeal to Christian clergy and laity and will also make an ideal text for courses in Christian doctrine and apologetics.
