Meet nine classic thinkers who helped shape Christianity
There exists a treasure trove of champions of the faith—one that overflows from the pages of the Bible into history itself. Kenneth Richard Samples has made this rich legacy accessible to all in a compact, powerful apologetics resource. A true beginner’s guide, Classic Christian Thinkers offers a concise yet meaningful look at nine of these timeless truth-seekers and how their insights bolster the case for Christian faith today.
“What a wonderful introduction to Christian history and Christian thought through the fascinating lives of the people God used through the centuries. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. Biographies are absorbing, but here we have nine captivating biographies presented at breakneck speed. But even better, these are the biographies that shaped it all. There is so much to learn here—and it is delightful learning that you will want to share with the people of your church.”

“Many of us pick up Christian theology and history in a piecemeal way. Kenneth Samples has written the book I wish I had read when I first began my own theological education. This short but masterful summary of the life and thought of nine of Christendom’s most significant thinkers will be an excellent resource for anyone wishing to understand Christian faith more deeply.”
