By John E. Halborg on May 16, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is in realiy a series of small articles about various patristic subjects. It attempts to cover the whole period in a rather limited number of pages. It is also written for the general reader and so is of less help to the patristic specialist. Here the references after each article are of help. I could have wished that each of the regional Church Councils would have been dealt with separately. Anything by McGuckin, however, is going to be good.

Professor McGuckin is the world's foremost authority on Patristics. He has gathered a wonderful collection of scholarly description and commentary. It is both a reference, and contemporary analysis. This book is indespensable.

If you are interested in the theology of the early Christian church, this is a great reference. It provides an excellent overview of many topics, including a description of the writings and of various subjects of the writings.
