Much is known about Basil of Caesarea (329379) a Greek Bishop in what is now Turkey. A thoughtful theologian, he was instrumental in the formation of the Nicene Creed and fought a growing heresy, Arianism, which had found converts even in those in high positions of state. In the face of such a threat he showed courage, wisdom and complete confidence in God without which, the Church would not be what it is today.
All of the makings of an important story that Evangelicals need to hear... Dr. Jones has done... Evangelicals a great favor in writing this lucid account.
Christians, whatever their tradition, need to know their forebears in the faith from the earliest generations of the Church. These holy men and women struggled to articulate the faith in a world that thought them foolish, misguided and often mad. They wrote mighty expositions of scripture, struggled to proclaim their faith and some were martyred for their efforts. Raised up by God to witness to the gospel they are ever deserving of our attention. Basil of Caesarea was one of the great figures in the fourth century who struggled to show that the Gospel proclaimed Christ to be God with us, and no creature. Marvin Jones succinctly and clearly introduces the man, his world and his faith. Marvins valuable book helps us to see the Christ of the gospels more clearly, and to understand how deeply God has worked in the history of the Christian community. Read and be inspired!
Encounter(s) Basil as a lover of the Triune God and His Church.
Introduces us not just to the subtlety and real acuity of Basil's thought but to a man of great warmth and affection... challenges us as well as instructs us.
I am thankful for Marvin Jones and this new work.
