Reviews - What do customers think about The Search for the Christian Doctrine of God: The Arian Controversy, 318-381?

Must Have for Patristic Theology Buffs  Jan 6, 2006
The late Mr. Hanson has written a masterpiece of clear, concise theological history that covers all the important aspects of the great Trinitarian Debates of the 4th century. He avoids getting bogged down in the "how-many-angels-on-the-head-of-a-pin" debates so characteristic of many patristic history tomes (though in their defence these kinds of debates were typical of patristic discourse.) He offers detailed descriptions of the political maneuvering involved in the post-Nicea and pre-Constantinople regional councils (e.g., Sardica) which typically get shortchanged in generic theological histories. His analysis may not be universally accepted but his logic and deductive abilities must be admired. It is a hefty chunk of change but be patient on the internet for a good price and then buy it!
Even handed & solid coverage of 4th century debates  Apr 7, 1999
I found this book to provide the best recounting of facts from the original source texts (more fair than Grillmeier's set.) His tone is not an apologetic of classical trinitarian dogma, but neither is he negatively skeptical of the what became "orthodoxy". The coverage is suggestive of the fluid state of doctrine at that time. Agreement, unfortunately was settled politically. The material focuses on the 4th century debates, but not the later extentions made at Chalcedon.
