Product Description

The world's leading expert on Montanism, William Tabbernee in Prophets and Gravestones has provided an excellent a definitive "narrative history" of this enigmatic and prophetic movement. As a narrative history, this book tells the story of a man named Montanus who came from Phrygia in Asia Minor and who started, around 165 A.D. a movement which bears his own name called Montanism. Montanus attracted his following by declaring that he had been "filled with the Spirit" and that he knew Christ to be returning to quite soon to the city of Pepouza, located in the modern nation of Turkey.

While distinct from the Christianity of the day, this was by no means a sect or heretical movement, and was embraced eminent Christians of the day including Priscilla, Maximilla, and the great Latin father and theologian Tertullian.

As a narrative history, this book will make excellent reading for anyone interested in Church History. Its style emphasizes the story, and its characters, but does not sacrifice scholarly precision, nor acumen. This is an excellent reading selection for any course in Early Christianity, and with its combination of peculiar historical circumstance, and controversial theology, will no doubt generate energetic discussion.
