Laurence Gardner is now my new favorite author! So very much authoritative detail that makes you go "Aha! Now I see the historical connections clearly!"
This author's writing style is excellent; and unlike so many eBooks I've encountered recently, I could not find a single typo. That makes the reading so much more enjoyable in my opinion, as stumbling blocks are not encountered anywhere that otherwise force the reader to interrupt the flow of their reading to resolve any typographical error.
Do I recommend this book?
YOU BET I DO!!
Fascinating book that really makes one reevaluate their faith in Christianity since at the Council of Nicaea (325AD) many books of the bible where omitted. Why? The answer lies within the book. Its sad that Mr. Gardner's is no longer with us but his numerous scholarly books are here for us to study and accept or reject his assertions and ponder! Anybody who is a true theology enthaustic will be enlightened when this book is read and perhaps spur one to other ancient research for better or worse!
"The First Council of Nicaea (/naɪ'si:ə/; Greek: Νίκαια /'ni:kaɪja/ Turkish: Iznik) was a council of Christian bishops convened in Nicaea in Bithynia by the Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325. This first ecumenical council was the first effort to attain consensus in the church through an assembly representing all of Christendom.
Its main accomplishments were settlement of the Christological issue of the nature of the Son of God and his relationship to God the Father, the construction of the first part of the Creed of Nicaea, establishing uniform observance of the date of Easter, and promulgation of early canon law."
