Christian thought from the birth of Christ, to the Apostles, to the early church, to the flowering of Christianity, to nowIn this revised and updated version of his popular history, Justo González retains the essential elements of his earlier three volumes as he describes the central figures and debates leading to the Councils of Nicea and Chalcedon. Then he moves to Augustine and shows how Christianity evolved and was understood in the Latin West and Byzantine East during the Middle Ages. Finally, he introduces the towering theological leaders of the Reformation and continues to trace the development of Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox Christianities through modernity in the twentieth century to postmodernity in the twenty-first.

Endorsements

"A new book by Justo Gonzalez is always welcome, but this abridgment of his three-volume classic is especially so. Justo has wielded his "red pencil" (as he humbly admits, with the help of his wife Catherine!) judiciously and creatively, and has produced a volume that will be a more accessible for students and other interested readers. I am grateful to Justo for an even more focused overview of the rich and complex history of our Christian tradition."

"Theologically penetrating and stylistically attractive, A History of Christian Thought in One Volume is “puro” González. This one volume rendition of his three-volume work, looses nothing of the usual narrative appeal and theological depth that students, professors, pastors and lay persons familiar with his work have come to expect. More than mere retelling, González has the keen ability to help readers understand the essence of the matter at hand, make connections, and understand repercussions for then and now."
--Zaida Maldonado Pérez, Professor of Church History and Theology, Asbury Seminary
