Every Christian Should Own This Nov 3, 2003
This book is a must have. Smith traces Christian theological concerns from various landscapes. He examines conservative evangelical trends (i.e., Fundamentalism, Pentecostalism, Reconstructionism, etc.) to the more liberal/unorthodox kinds (i.e., Process theology, Liberation theology, Feminist theology, etc.). In each section Smith gives the reader the history of the movement, the prominant people involved in the movement, and the basic theological convictions of the movement (he even gives the pros and cons of each movement). This book is an essential resource. It will be a very valuable guide to Bible study teachers who are doing a series in various movements in Christianity and for seminary students who need to have a quick reference tool when they do a research assignment on contemporary theological trends.
