This textbook provides complete and comprehensive coverage of the theological tradition of Aquinas, Maximus, Luther, Irenaeus, Lonergan, von Balthasar, Schmemann, Meyendorf and Barth. Each section of this textbook explores a wide variety of questions - who are we? Is there a God, and if so, what is his nature? Who is Jesus? What does it mean that we live both in sin and righteousness? It consists of 15 modules that are comprised of 46 chapters. Each module has two parts: there are systematic chapters that discuss and explain each module's topic; and the final chapter of each module examines 4 to 6 primary sources that are important for each topic. This textbook includes an extensive range of pedagogical features: - Sample tests in which each objective question has been quality tested by classroom use (with a discrimination index) - A discussion guide for each chapter - Learning objectives linked to each chapter - The text includes bold-faced terms, boxed text sections that identify central figures and points of debate, study question, chapter summaries, glossary

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is the sort of theology book Thomas Aquinas envisioned: it brings all that belongs to the Christian faith into a full account that flows `according to the subject matter.' The great tradition comes alive here, in a depth that inspires rather than wearies or confuses. His use of a dialectic of history and `message' is a model for theologians today. A true teacher's book, and a book that invites students of theology into a rich, ancient, and always regenerating conversation about and with the God of scripture. * ANTHONY D. BAKER, Professor of Theology, Seminary of the Southwest, Austin, Texas *
My long search for the `perfect' textbook of Christian theology may have come to an end. Cone's book is pedagogically brilliant, comprehensive, balanced, informed, clearly argued, and well-illustrated. Guided by the Great Tradition, it is ecumenical and committed, critical and faithful, traditional and current. Cone's work is an astounding achievement to be welcomed by every teacher and student of Christian theology. * RON HIGHFIELD, Pepperdine University, USA *
In Theology from the Great Tradition, Steve Cone provides readers with a full introduction to the theological discourse that stretches from the first century to the twenty-first century. Building upon his earlier work, Cone here offers a robust study that will be beneficial to students and scholars alike. * CHRIS KEITH, St. Mary's University, UK *
Few are the books that aid students in building an approach to Christian theology from the ground up, but Cone's volume here does just that with skill and with a wide compass. He considers afresh the authorization of the theological quest through scripture, tradition, reason, and experience, while also addressing what we are actually `doing' when we `do' theology. Cone also wonderfully solicits the guidance of historic Christian thinkers, and the wisdom of a diverse range of contemporary theologians, to explore the enduring themes of Christian thought and life. This book bursts the bounds of a primer, but in its breadth and depth is sure to be an excellent textbook for college and seminary courses. * PAUL M. BLOWERS, Milligan College, USA *
