Fisher, Professor Cunliffe-Jones has brought together a team of experts in the various periods to provide a new and comprehensive survey of the field.All the great themes, the Fathers, the Heretics of the long story here find their due place, from sub-apostolic Christianity to Vatican II. Also featured are the contribution of Orthodox theology to the whole development, the complex problems of the pre-Reformation period and the troubled modern period with its new perspectives of Church and society and its deep underlying malaise.
