I think it would be good if there are links to Grudem as it is mentioned in the text.

Most historical theology texts follow Christian beliefs chronologically, discussing notable doctrinal developments for all areas of theology according to their historical appearance. And while this may be good history, it can make for confusing theology, with the classic theological loci scattered throughout various time periods, movements, and controversies.
In Historical Theology, Gregg Allison offers students the opportunity to study the historical development of theology according to a topical-chronological arrangement, setting out the history of Christian doctrine one theological element at a time. Such an approach allows readers to concentrate on one tenet of Christianity and its formulation in the early church, through the Middle Ages, Reformation, and post-Reformation era, and into the modern period. The text includes a generous mix of primary source material as well, citing the words of Cyprian, Augustine, Aquinas, Luther, Calvin, Barth, and others. Allison references the most accessible editions of these notable theologians’ work so that readers can continue their study of historical theology through Christian history’s most important contributors.
Historical Theology is a superb resource for those familiar with Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology as this book presents the history of various doctrines in identical order to their appearance in Grudem’s Systematic Theology. Rather than following the history of Christianity and learning about various doctrines as they arise, readers can trace the development of vital Christian theology topic by topic.

P.S. I would love if the items in the store has links to the resources in Accordance. Often the description is expanded so I want to look in this resources but then I have to type it in Accordance instead of just click on a link "Open in Accordance" or the Image is linked to the Accordance resources. See this as a feature request in the Store.
