They both survey over a dozen primary figures, including Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant theologians, who represent the breadth and depth of the church’s theology. This includes such people as Irenaeus of Lyon, John of Damascus, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Teresa of Avila, and Gustavo Gutiérrez. The book explores how they fit into their own time period and also draws attention to the theological voices of women throughout the church’s history.
