IVP Academic Pocket History of Evangelical Theology

Roger Olson provides us with a concise, lively and readable history of evangelical theology.

Finding its antecedents in early Pietism of the late seventeenth century, Olson traces its development through the revivalism in Great Britain and America in the eighteenth century from its roots within Puritanism, Wesleyanism and the Great Awakening. Olson then takes us forward in time as he considers evangelicalism in its connection with the Old Princeton theology, Holiness-Pentecostalism and fundamentalism, tracing its course to our contemporary context.

Great as a reference book, a refresher course or for use in introductory theology classes.

The book is excellent but I need a magnifier to read it. I only wish it came in bigger print. The work is superb in its lay out and very readable beyond the type print problem. I learned so much from it I would hardly know where to begin.
