Item description for Ecclesiastical Authority and Spiritual Power in the Church of the First Three Centuries by Hans Von Campenhausen, J. A. Baker & Hans Campenhausen...

The issue of authority in the church, what constitutes authority, and who has it, has been one of the foremost issues throughout church history, including the modern church. The practice of the early church and the writings of the New Testament are of primary importance for understanding the problem of authority. We can enhance our understanding further by taking into consideration the sociological phenomena surrounding any emergent social group that traverses a path from charismatic leadership to formal governing structures. Von Campenhausen's masterful blending of historical assessment with sociological analysis makes this work a fundamental resource for the study of the development of the early church and the writings of the New Testament.

"In-Depth Perspective to the Ecclesiastical Foundations"  May 9, 2001
This book is among the most dynamic approaches to solving the much discussed problem of "Ecclesiastical and Spiritual Authority in the First Three Centuries of the Church" that may be found. Hans Von Campenhausen's sociologial and historical perspective, blendid with his theoretical wit and scholarly lore, make this book an entertaining and ultimately edifying experience. Von Campenhausen dissolves some of the most complex questions history has left us behind and builds a comprehensive and unequivocal bulwark of learning for the clergyman and lay person alike. Some topics Von Campenhausen deals with are the power of the keys to bind and loose, the penitential and disciplinary techniques, and the controversial nature of apostolic succession in the Church of the first three centuries. All in all this book is an excellent source for grasping the perplexities of the Church's formation into the ecclesiastical organization we know today.
