The Faith of the Early Fathers - Volume 1

SKU: 21449


by: William A. Jurgens, H.E.D.

A source book of theological and historical passages from the Christian writings of the Pre-nicene and Nicene eras. Volume 1 ends circa 382.

The passages selected are keyed to the numerical order established in M/J. Rouet de Journel's "Enchiridion Patristicum". In no sense, however, are these volumes a translation of that standard work. The author has made his own investigation of theological textbooks in common use and has selected the patristic passages most frequently cited, including much that is in Rouet and much that is not. All passages have been freshly and accurately translated from the best critical editions.

Preceding each selection is a brief introduction treating the authorship, date and place of composition, and the purpose of the work from which the selection is taken. The author's scholarship and sprightly sense of humor are evident in these prefatory remarks.

Of immense value to the reader id the Doctrinal Index provided for each volume. Here one can find the texts pertinent to particular doctrinal points, a method especially useful to homilists. In addition, each volume is enhanced by comprehensive Scriptural and General Indices.
