This volume is intended as a companion to the story already told in Makers of Christian Theology in America (Abingdon, 1997) by scholars who sketched intellectual portraits of 91 thinkers formative in Christian theological discussion. Emphasis is on theologians or theologies which reach considerably beyond their denominational, regional, ethnic, or "school" support bases. The volume thus has selections of the sort standard and revisionist histories alike have cause to take into account in their field surveys. The focus is on the traditions of scholarly Christian church theology, and the selections offer access to substantive content at some considerable length, using complete and self-contained samples when possible, instead of snippets. The four eras of Christian theology's history in America covered by these sixty readings are the colonial, early national, post-Civil War to World War I, and twentieth-century developments.

In The Mosaic of Christian Belief Roger E. Olson thematically traces the contours of Christian belief down through the ages, revealing a pattern of both unity and diversity. He finds a consensus of teaching that is both unitive and able to incorporate a faithful diversity when not forced into the molds of false either-or alternatives. The mosaic that emerges from Olson's work, now updated throughout and with a new chapter on the Holy Spirit, displays a mediating evangelical theology that is irenic in spirit and tone. Olson, writing with nonspecialists in mind, has masterfully sketched out the contours of the Great Tradition of the Christian faith with simplicity while avoiding oversimplification.

The community of evangelicals sometimes seems so broad as to defy definition, but theological conservatism has been one consistent marker. Now, says theologian Roger Olson, postconservatism is moving beyond conventional battles against liberalism and heresy to posit a dynamic and realistic approach. While conservatives strive to preserve tradition and protect orthodoxy, postconservatives urge openness to doctrinal reform without abandoning orthodoxy. Where differences exist between doctrine and Scripture, doctrine must be brought into conformity with the Word. Postconservatives want to free evangelical theology from its paradoxical captivity to rationalism and its obsession with "facts" so that it may recognize truth in experience and personal knowledge. Theologians, pastors, seminarians, and serious thinkers will find many depths to plumb in this exhaustive survey of critics, advocates, and fellow travelers on the evangelical journey.
