Item description for 28. Tertullian: Treatises on Penance: On Penitence and On Purity (Ancient Christian Writers) by Tertullian, T. C. Lawler & Walter J. Burghardt...

Overview
The judgment that one forms of the theory and practice of pennace in Christian antiquity will be largely determined by the interpretation which one puts upon these two treatises. On Penitence dates from Tertullian's Catholic period, and is a sermon addressed to the faithful on the subject of repentance and forgiveness. On Purity is one of his most violent Montanist treatises. In it he criticizes the policy the Church follows in granting pardon to serious sins.

Reviews - What do customers think about 28. Tertullian: Treatises on Penance: On Penitence and On Purity (Ancient Christian Writers)?

Did not buy!  May 5, 2009
The deal fell through and the seller was not able to deliver the book. I have no idea on how else to clear this book from my list of those to review. Not sure there is that much of an "audience" for this type of reading. I do know that the few who buy and read ancient Christian writers, (and those who write reviews) can be very critical and even nasty at times. Doesn't fit, does it?
