Product Description

The history of Christian Theology is in large part a history of heresies, because Jesus and the claims he made...seemed incredible, writes the author. Heresies presents the story of how succeeding generations of Christians through almost twenty centuries have tried to understand, trust, and obey Jesus Christ. Particularly concerned with christology and trinitarianism, the author calls on the four major creeds of the church.....Apostles, Nicene, Athanasian, and Chalcedonian....to separate orthodoxy from heresy. He acknowledges that heresy served this purpose historically, so it serves this purpose pedagogically in Heresies. This volume presents a clarion call to evangelicals to preserve tenaciously the faith once delivered to the saints.

Publisher's Description

"The history of Christian theology is in large part a history of heresies, because Jesus and the claims he made . . . seemed incredible," writes the author. "Heresies "presents "the story of how succeeding generations of Christians through almost twenty centuries have tried to understand, trust, and obey Jesus Christ." Particularly concerned with christology and trinitarianism, the author calls on the four major creeds of the church" Apostles', Nicene, Athanasian, and Chalcedonian" to separate orthodoxy from heresy. He acknowledges that heresy has done much more than confuse and divide the church. It has also helped the church to classify orthodoxy. Just as heresy served this purpose historically, so it serves this purpose pedagogically in "Heresies."

This volume presents a clarion call to evangelicals to preserve tenaciously "the faith once delivered to the saints." Frank E. James III wrote in the "Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society: " "Brown deserves to be commended not only for his insightful scholarship and his readable style but also and more importantly for providing a sorely-needed jab to the soft underbelly of modern evangelicalism."

    Generally conservative Christian text.

    The text is not very revealing at to actually history, but seems to hold to strict Orthodox teaching.

    The 'bias' does not give way to candid and more actual history of how the "losers," the Gnostics evolved, but the

    "winners" progressed.

    Basically, if you have Ecclesiastic History, or Church History that cites the Council(s), there is now need for this text.

    It just goes back to who judged the 'heretics' heretics, and does not go too deep into their practice.

    I was very pleased with the fullness and scope of this work. Many people wish to not look at heresies thinking they will go away, or totally with out basis. Harold O.J. Brown explores in a very educated and studied manner the actual heresies that surrounded the old Christian church. Very in depth and detailed too I might add. The insight is amazing, and Harold Brown is not afraid to give his research information. <br /><br />It's nice to know about the early cults and heresies from back then, being many resurface today under a new cloak to get others to blindly embrace. But by the study of them, it makes for much easier analyzing situations that encompass us today.
