A Short History of Christian Thought

Urban, Linwood: A Short History of Christian Thought. Oxford: Oxford University Press 1995. 480 pp. ISBN 9780195093483

This is a revision of a text first published in 1986. Urban introduces students to the historical roots of modern Christian doctrines and the links between them. Each chapter is devoted to a specific issue in the Christian theology; this edition adds two new chapters, on the Sacraments, and Church and Ministry. The Epilogue has also been revised to deal with contemporary issues such as women's ordination and the relationship between Christianity and other religions.
