Product Description

Early Christian Doctrine is a clear, precise and up-to-date account of the early history of Christian doctrine. It is invaluable for an understanding of the formative period when the main lines of Christian dogma were laid down; and it presents a balanced picture of the early controversies in the light of modern scholarship. The doctrines of the Trinity, the authority of the Bible and tradition, the nature of Christ, salvation, original sin and grace, and the sacraments are all extensively treated in these pages.

Publisher's Description

This revised edition of the standard history of the first great period in Christian thought has been thoroughly updated in the light of the latest historical findings. Dr. Kelly organizes an ocean of material by outlining the development of each doctrine in its historical context. He lucidly summarizes the genesis of Chrisitian thought from the close of the apostolic age to the Council of Chalcedon in the fifth century--a time teeming with fresh and competing ideas. The doctrines of the Trinity, the authority of the Bible and tradition, the nature of Christ, salvation, original sin and grace, and the sacraments are all extensively treated in these pages.

This revised edition of Early Christian Doctrines includes:

  • Sweepingly updated early chapters
  • Revised and updated bibliographies
  • A completely new chapter on Mary and the saints

    Joel Mitchell
    As a theological undergrad student performing an independent study of Christology, Kelley's work was chosen by my professor to serve as the chief text. I found this book to extremely exhaustive, both physically and mentally, yet it is a seminal work giving the reader great insight to the formation accepted church doctrine and the specific issues which marked heresies. I highly recommend it as a beginning point for any desiring to study church history, dogma, creeds, doctrine, or even soteriology. A must have for any self-respecting theologians library!
