Editorial Reviews

"...quite simply the finest piece of constructive theology I have read in years. With due respect to Jaroslav Pelikan, Nicholas Lash, and others, Thiel's is the best book in English on the development of doctrine since John Henry Newman's essay on the same topic."--Modern Theology
