Reviews - What do customers think about Pocket History of Theology (The Ivp Pocket Reference)?

3 stars  Mar 23, 2007
*** Although the term evangelical can mean a variety of things, there is a branch of Christianity that can be said to use that as a name for its aspect of the church universal. The author traces the Evangelicalistic movement from the late sixteen hundreds to the present, identifying the major influencers of it and the particular disputes under this umbrella. Although the cover blurb calls this a concise, lively, and readable history, the first adjective is the only one that is actually on target. However, since I do not expect such reading to be lively, the concise nature is highly appreciated. The facts given will appeal to anyone wanting a greater grasp of this history, but if you are looking to know exactly how to define Evangelicalism, at the end, the definition will still be somewhat fuzzy. ***
 
Great for those wading itno theology!  Jun 1, 2006
Excellent summary of complex issues, and complicate history, and written well, with the non-professional in mind. Footnotes to work - and a good index.

Definitely a good investment of time and money for freshmen theologians!
