    This is an amazing book and a wonderful starting place for looking up early church beliefs.

    Of course it can't contain everything. If you want something that doesn't leave anything out, buy the whole set of ante Nicene writings. If you want a nice one volume reference, this book is for you.

    You could easily spend hours in amazement as to what early Christians believed and how far mainstream Christianity has changed from the original.

    This text is probably more note worthy for what it leaves out than for what it puts in. The Author will not stand before anyone who has actually read the early Fathers. Seems he found what he wanted to find rather than what was there. I reviewed the book for a friend and found it very poor indeed! I teach the Early Church Fathers and this book will not be found helpful to any reader.

    An excellent resource for those who have no access to the volumes of ante-Nicene writings. Here is a compilation of important quotations from early Christians arranged topically. Interestingly, through this book, one can trace back Anabaptist doctrines such as non-resistance and non-conformity to early Christianity.

    David Bercot's greatest work on the patristic writings truly help to open a vast body of literature not easily accesible for the average individual. I find this work a very useful tool in assisting to delve deeply into these writings for even those unfamiliar with the Church Fathers. While I would advise to use this book as a starting point to get deeper into the source material it is a spectacular and much needed work for anyone interested in Church history, doctrinal issues and development of theology. Bercot has also prepared many audio lessons which I have found to be very interesting and useful.

    Many Christians who are exploring the 'early church' start at around A.D. 325. This dictionary takes you into the time before the Emperors influenced the decisions of the Church. Bercot does an excellent job keeping the commentary to mimimum and letting these early disciples speak for themselves. This should be in every church library!
