A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs

Written by David W. Bercot, Editor Reviewed By Tony Gray

This impressive volume collects together quotes from patristic sources relating to more than 700 theological, moral and historical topics. Ranging from central topics such as the nature of Christ and the Trinity, to historical figures such as Marcion, this volume is comprehensive and would serve as a quick reference tool for all interested in the fathers yet who do not have immediate access to the original sources. Although it cannot be a replacement for such study of the primary texts in their context, it will be hopefully act as an enticement for many into the study of patristic theology and history.
