Product Description

First published in 1988, Hanson's study of the Trinitarian conflicts of the fourth century combines exacting research with clear composition to provide the standard English-language description of the Arian/Nicene controversy. His translation and synthesis of primary and secondary literature and illuminating opinions about patristic theology and exegesis turn this complex period into an intelligible---even dramatic---story. 960 pages, softcover from Baker.

    A very honest & evenhanded treatment of the subject

    A very scholarly, but yet accessible and well-written book; very honest & evenhanded treatment of the subject; excellent analysis of the complexities involved with the issue. I had a personal interest in this subject due to having interactions with both modern day Arians and Sabellians, and by having a desire to better understand the historical complexities of the controversies surrounding the subject. Having personally read a variety of writers who have wrestled with the subject of the Trinity (both from a historical and theological standpoint), and having read all of the writings of the Ante-Nicene Fathers that have been made available to the public, and having read portions of some of the key Nicene and post Nicene writings on this subject, I would guess that I am a little more qualified than the average reader to evaluate this book and I would highly recommend it. It is, of course, not light reading and it takes discipline and focus to read it all the way through (after all, it is a big book, and it treats the subject fairly intensely and very thoroughly), but it definitely held my attention! It would help if the reader were already somewhat familiar with the subject and the historical situation that the book is dealing with, but even if a person is not that familiar with these things, it is written in such a way that if a person were industrious enough to do some independent research on things that they don't understand in the book as they read through it, then any person of average intelligence that wants to learn about the subject can handle this book and benefit from reading it.
