"A promising, informative, and thoughtful exploration of distinctive aspects of the doctrine of salvation. This work breaks ground by showing the historical roots and hermeneutical moves made by important theological figures which led to particular interpretations of salvation. This collection of essays serves as an important tool in helping theological students and pastors explore their own theological tradition while at the same time prompting deeper conversations with ecumenical partners."
—Paul Galbreath, Union Presbyterian Seminary
"Christian Theologies of Salvation offers summary statements on salvation as understood by major Christian writers from the first century to contemporary times. This study allows the reader to trace both varieties and continuities in this doctrine as it developed in Western Christianity. It balances informed treatment of the nuances in individual figures with a vision of the big picture in which these sources have given rise to divergent strands of tradition and practice. It will serve students well as a reference on both headings."
—S. Mark Heim, Andover Newton at Yale Divinity School
"Holcomb has assembled a fine group of scholars to look at four major periods—patristic, Middle Ages, Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation, and the 18th to 21st centuries...[A] solid study of important voices on Christian salvation."
