The Great Tradition of Christian Thinking: A Student’s Guide

By David S. Dockery and Timothy George

Surveying the long-standing history of Christian thinkers—ranging from the Apostles to the Reformers to the 21st century’s greatest theologians—this book introduces readers to the distinctive way that Christians through the years have read the Bible, formulated doctrine, provided education, and engaged the culture.

That’s a lot of ground to cover in a slim volume of about 100 pages. I’d call this “a concise guide,” myself.
