SCM Press A-Z of Patristic Theology
This item is a print on demand title and will be dispatched in 1-3 weeks.
The SCM Press A-Z of Patristic Theology offers a valuable resource to students of Church history and historical theology.
Combining accessibility with erudition, the expansive essays neither assure prior knowledge of the field nor fall prey to the dangers of oversimplification.
A coherence of voice and vision is sustained, largely due to the fact that this volume is the work of one author, John Anthony McGuckin, whose deep learnedness and passion for ancient Christianity is evidenced on every page. Covering topics from East and West, the range of reference is from architecture and its liturgical implications, through to succinct explorations of persons, councils and controversies, definitions of faith, doctrine and the Christian life.
"This is a fine book with fine bibliographies and a sensible thematic guide." John Hunwicke, compiler of the ORDO. NEW DIRECTIONS, January 2006.
"From the Acts of the Martyrs to the Virgin Mary, fron Aetius to Vincent of Lerins, from abortion to women - to have all this in one well-priced volume is a benefit for every teacher or student of patristic theology - all the more so when the author is as well-versed in so many topics as John McGuckin is, and is able to match exactitude of knowledge with economy of style." Mark Edwards, Church Times, 10 March 2006.
