    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.
