Westminister John Knox Press

10767 Aquinas for Armchair Theologians
Timothy M. Renick
Westminster John Knox Press
ISBN 978-0-664-22304-5
BIO - Biography / BIOR / Book
Thomas Aquinas was one of the most influential thinkers in the history of Christianity and in western civilization. But his theological views can seem complex, and presume acquaintance with technical philosophical language.
Now Timothy Renick has produced an attractive and accessible account of Aquinas’s thought and life that will make his views clear to non-specialists. The topics dealt with include God, angels, evil, metaphysics, morality, sex, war, abortion, and politics.
10766 Jonathan Edwards for Armchair Theologians
James P. Byrd
Westminster John Knox Press
ISBN 978-0-664-23199-6
BIO - Biography / BIOB / Book
This witty and illuminating volume introduces the life and writings of the great American theologian and preacher Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758). The most widely studied figure in American religious history and an iconic figure of the American colonial period, Edwards is well known and highly regarded as a stalwart defender of Calvinist theology and his Puritan heritage. As James P. Byrd deftly reveals, however, Edwards was also a brilliant thinker and passionate pastor who wrestled continuously with the most important issue of his time: the relationship between faith and reason.

Written by experts but designed for the novice, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound moments and theologians in Christian history. These books are essential supplements for first-time encounters with primary texts, lucid refreshers for scholars and clergy, and enjoyable reads for the theologically curious.

The Eerdmans' Handbook to the History of Christianity presents a comprehensive, colorful, reliable account of this exciting story. The eight major sections introduce the history of Christianity, period-by-period, from its earliest days to the late twentieth century. Specially commissioned main chapters by expert historians from the framework within which many shorter sections appear: on people, movements, and subjects of particular interest. Over 450 photographs, many in full color, give the feel of each period. And useful maps, diagrams, and charts help the reader to understand and interpret the story, giving a bird's-eye view of events.

The emphasis of the Handbook is on growth and vitality rather than on institutions, giving a broad understanding of each historical period, and then spotlighting key Christian movements and outstanding personalities of the era.
