This selection of writings from the most important moments in the history of Christianity has become established as a classic reference work, providing insights into years of Christian theological and political debate. While retaining the original material selected by Henry Bettenson, Chris Maunder has added a substantial section of more recent writings.
These illustrate the Second Vatican Council; the theologies of liberation; Church and State from ‘Thatcher’s Britain’ to Communist Eastern Europe; Black, feminist, and ecological theology; ecumenism; and inter-faith dialogue.
