  5. In Praise of Christian Origins

    In Praise of Christian Origins

    $75.95

    "Penner's 'In Praise of Christian Origins' draws on an extraordinarily wide range of reading in New testament studies, classical rhetoric, ancient historiography, and Jewish-Hellenistic literature. Penner's grasp of all these fields is admirable and matched by few. Penner brings this rich array of scholarship to bear on a novel interpretation of Acts' narrative on the 'Hellenists' and Stephen. Setting this narrative in the context of a historiography guided by the aims of epideitic rhetoric, he has shifted focus away from traditional questions of historicity or theology to be constructed of Christian self-identy. The book is controversial, provocative, and stimulating in the best sense." - Erich Gruen, Professor of History and Classics, University of California, Berkeley Learn More

  7. From Nicaea to Chacedon

    From Nicaea to Chacedon

    $69.95

    Created as a companion guide to a Patristics textbook, From Nicaea to Chalcedon surveys a variety of writings to have occurred during one of the most significant periods in the formation of the Church, from 265-466. It does not aim to cover the subject as a textbook would, but aims to delve deeper into some of the characters who were involved with the Church or the Councils during this period. Beginning with Eusebius of Caesarea and the first council of the Church at Nicaea, and ending with Theodoret of Cyrrhus, who is thought to have changed his view of Christology after the watershed Council of Chalcedon, this unique text surveys some of the most influential characters to have shaped Church history and the formation of doctrine. Surveying a mixture of significant literary figures, laymen, bishops and heretics this book presents biographical, literary-critical and theological information about each. They are chosen either because they are important to the history of doctrine, or because new material about them has thrown light upon their work, or because they will broaden the reader's understanding of the culture and history of the period or of live issues in the church at the time.

    Noble Task. Entry into the Clergy in the first five Centuries

    $42.95

    This book presents a rich collection of key texts from the Fathers and early councils setting out what was expected in moral and educational terms from aspirants to the clergy in the early Christian centuries. Hitherto students of the early church have had to search for this material in a variety of different publications. Here they will find it translated and discussed in a comprehensive manner. Although the latest historical scholarship has been taken into account, the book's
    main focus is on the spiritual rather than the social role of the clergy. It is the author's deepest wish that those aspiring to the Christian priesthood might find here an accurate and vivid account of the virtuous life that should always be their goal. Includes a foreword by Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware). Learn More
