Out of Galilee: The History of Christian Thought as a Great Conversation is an ambitious exploration of Christian thought over two millennia. It discloses the remarkable unity in diversity of the thought of women, monks, mystics, men, philosophers, and theologians who are seeking to unfold the meaning and mystery of divine intention in Jesus Christ. From the first century in Galilee to the early apologists such as Irenaeus, from Augustine's Confessions to the mystic voices of Hildegaard of Bingen and Teresa of Avila, and to reformers such as Martin Luther and John Calvin, Christians have sought to understand the Christian vision and unfold paths of spirituality. The quest continues among Pietists, among Puritans such as Jonathan Edwards, and among Methodists. Together with modern thinkers such as Schliermacher and contemporaries such as Thomas Berry and Abhishiktanada, these notable figures have woven the living narrative of Christian thought. You will find them all here, in accessible language intended for a generalist audience. Avoiding technical language, Out of Galilee reveals the essential contributions of each to the story of Christian thinking through the ages. ""Only a scholar of Bryant's deep learning and splendid pedagogical skills would dare to pack in some 400 pages the entire development of Christian theology, and he does succeed brilliantly! Out of Galilee is highly readable and can serve as an excellent textbook for a course in Christian thought."" --Peter C. Phan, author of The Joy of Religious Pluralism ""Bryant weaves together contextual analysis, history of doctrine, and human interest in this treatment of whole history of Christian thought. . . . His years of experience shine through in deft descriptions of seminal thinkers and intelligent selection of key moments in the Christian traditions. Out of Galilee is outstanding as a single volume designed to induct the reader into Christian conversation."" --Richard Topping, Vancouver School of Theology ""Out of Galilee is unlike any other book on the history of Christian thought. Far from the detached treatise of an armchair theologian, it is the culmination of four decades of experience introducing students from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds to the story of the Christian faith, which was informed by a lifetime of dialogue with Christians from every part of the world. Both the book and the story that it tells are truly a great conversation."" --Adam Stewart, Crandall University M.
