This is a great book for anyone interested learning the historical aspects of the various doctrines of the Church, their development, and how they have been understood over the centuries.

Historical Theology by Gregg Allison is an excellent tool in the hands of any believer. This book, referenced as a companion guide to Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology and an introduction to Christian Doctrine, shines in its attempt to make the reader familiar with the doctrines it presents and their historical context. This book should be a must buy for anyone who owns Grudem's Systematic Theology and has an interest in digging deeper.
The book is laid out into seven parts:
1) The Doctrine of the Word of God
2) The Doctrine of God
3) The Doctrine of Humanity
4) The Doctrines of Christ and the Holy Spirit
5) The Doctrine of the Application of Redemption
6) The Doctrine of the Church
7) The Doctrine of the Future
These are the same seven divisions that Grudem's book has which makes cross referencing very easy. When studying a certain topic of theology it is easy to go back and forth between these two books and this book really compliments Grudem's very well. In studying the various doctrines in this book Allison takes the reader through church history and divides it into four periods: the early church, the middle ages, the reformation and the modern period. Allison references a wide range of sources and anyone from Augustine to Chrysostom to Calvin to Wesley to Edwards and many more can be found in this work.
Historical Theology is packaged very nicely for the reader and serves as a great companion tool with Grudem's Systematic Theology. Any serious student of the Word would do well to add this book to their library and study it for years to come! What a wonderful gift to the church!
I received a copy of this book from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review.

Allison does a outstanding job on research, in the history of the church. Allison does not skip a beat, everybody from Clement of Rome, Polycarp, to Billy Graham. If only two books could be on your shelf besides the Bible it would be this one and Grudem's systematic theology.

This book is a excellent tool to learn the story of the Church of hour Lord Jesus Christ through time. Begining with the early apostolic Church to the present, and divided in four periods of time, the author teach the reader in different topic how the church develop trough time and show many of the errors commited by men on the sound doctrine and in other topics on each historical period. I really remcomend this book to anyone who want to know the history of church. But thanks be given to God and to hour Lord Jesus Christ because he preserved his true word trough time, to him be given Glory an Honor forever, Amen
