Solid Scholarship Apr 6, 2008
This is a work of solid scholarship that covers an important period in the history of Christianity. The section on the social and political context of the second century C.E. is particularly helpful for the general reader. Wagner analyzes the philosophies of five early Christian leaders--Ignatius of Antioch, Turtulian, etc.--using the categories of biography, and then the leaders' views on human nature, identity of Jesus, the Church, and Christians and society. This approach allows comparisons and, because the topics are so important for us today, provides contemporary readers with a window on the diversity of the early church that helps us understand current controversies.
