Item description for Trinitarian Controversy (Sources of Early Christian Thought) by Robert D. Saler & William G. Rusch...

This volume is a collection of primary texts that illustrates the lengthy process by which the early Christians reached a coherent doctrine of God. The period under discussion, generally known as the trinitarian controversy dates from around AD 319, the preaching of Arius, to about AD 419, the completion of Augustine's On the Trinity. The documents reveal the unfolding of the theological process in which the church was seeking to distinguish its faith from paganism and to affirm the salvific character of its message.

Publishers Description

Reviews - What do customers think about Trinitarian Controversy (Sources of Early Christian Thought)?

Trinitarian Controversy  Feb 25, 2006
I bought this book for a seminary class on Christology. It was one of 3 books we had to read. The introduction was helpful in understanding the translated sources used in the book. I recommend this for anyone who is interested in an indepth look at the "Trinitarian Controversy"
I was disappointed.........  Jun 5, 2004
A very educational book. However, for the novice layman, it needs upgrading. I was disappointed because there is no index to the references mentioned. This is very definitely not for the lay student of casual interest; which should include every Christian. The introduction needs to be re-written for the lay person, to include definitions, footnotes, appendix, bibliography of the writings cited, etc. Too many terms, vocabulary, and references not sourced.
Weighty but Worth It.  Sep 27, 2001
Brings clear insight to why Christians believe in the doctrine of the Trinity by presenting the primary sources. If you are not accustomed to reading works from the first few centuries this book will be a little difficult to read at first. However, it is well worth the effort. Though these writings are not modern by any stretch of the imagination, they are brilliant and well thought out. Read it today if you want to know why Christians believe in One Triune God.
