Reviews - What do customers think about The Shaping of Christianity: The History and Literature of Its Formative Centuries (100-800)?

Great text  Nov 19, 2007
One of my favorite assigned books in my last year in college. Great academic work.
Excellent for a newcomer and an expert in the field!  Aug 13, 1999
Gerard Vallee has produced a volume which will be equally useful to one being introduced to Chris- tianity during its formative years and for those who have been involved in this study for many years. A glossary and excellent indices are a bonus. The rehabilitation of "hertics" is excit- ing as are the author's insights on conversion and inculturation. The book is intended for col- lege and university undergraduates but will have many other uses in discussion groups and in an RCIA programme, for example. Its excellent and precise English will stretch the vocabulary of readers, something to be hoped for at any and every educational level in which it will be used. It might also be used by gifted secondary school students unhappy with the "pap" that is presented in too many high school church history classes. As one who has taught this subject in several settings, I recommend it unreservedly. Catherine Berry Stidsen, Ph.D., R.T.C.
