9780334040101: SCM Press A-Z of Patristic Theology

The early centuries of the Christian era were marked by a variety of theological emerged with proposals about what the Chistian church should believe and how theological ideas related to each other. Some of these theologians gained more prominent status and their ideas became sources on which others built. Patristic theology is thus a formative period, a yeasty time in which theological doctrines took on many stages of complexity.


This outstanding handbook by a leading specialist in Patristic Theology provides students and scholars with easy access to key terms, figures, socio-cultural developments, and controversies of this period, extending to the ninth-century. McGuckin's introductory essay outlines the main intellectual issues in the early church. His concluding Bibliographic Guide Essay and General Bibliography also features a Website Resources Guide to assist readers with additional ways to study this period. The entries are written to help those with no previous theological knowledge understand the major dimensions of each topic. The result is an eminently useful, reliable, and unique resource.

Review:

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.
