This entire volume, all 2000 pages, consists of the writings of Tertullian. He is considered the `father of Latin Christianity'. He lived from roughly 160 - 225 AD. His writings are mostly accepted as orthodox by traditional Christians, though he is joined the Montanist sect in later life, which is considered a heretical group. He is best known as the first Latin writer to use the term Trinity and define it in similar terms to what later became part of mainstream Christianity.

His works are broken into three major groups. The first covers apologetics, the second (and biggest section) covers attacks against heresies, and the third section covers ethics.

I personally found that most of his writings did not interest me much, especially compared with the writings of earlier writers in the first two volumes of this work. Much of it covered topics that are not of interest to modern readers.

Doctrinally, he is definitely closest to what the later Nicene council adapted than any other earlier Christian writer. He is firmly entrenched in the doctrine of creation ex nihilo (unlike some earlier Christian fathers), and spends a lot of time expounding why this belief is so important.

There were some interesting tidbits. He noted that the baptism ceremony consisted of formally renouncing the devil, being thrice immersed and then refraining from bathing for the entire week afterwards. He also noted that Christians pray towards the East.

He also stated that it was the Son of God that spoke to Moses and not the Father since it is not possible to see the Father and live. Additionally, he believed in deification as most early Christian fathers did.

I did have to read an awful lot of boring stuff to get to the interesting bits and pieces. Not recommended for the casual reader, but definitely a must for those who want to know more about the beliefs of Tertullian.

It's great to have these volumes available on the Kindle in such a well-presented format. I have just a few critiques: (1) It is difficult to tell which of the works you are currently reading because all you have to go by from the current screen on your kindle is the location number. You have to go back to the table of contents and bounce around to figure it out. Actual page numbers and headings tied to the Author, Work, and Chapter would be great. It would be even better if those headings were hyperlinks back to the table of contents.

Also, the footnotes are highlighted in a way that, on the iPod or iPad Kindle app, looks identical to the reader's own highlights.
