5.0 von 5 Sternen A look at the earliest Christian beliefs 2. August 2011
Von Jeffrey Van Wagoner - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
I have read many books on early Christian beliefs and decided it was time to look at the source material for these books and come up with my own summaries of these beliefs. This is volume 1 of 10 in this series and it covers the writings of what are termed the `Apostolic Fathers' since these are mostly men that knew the original apostles. The other 9 volumes all cover writers who lived and wrote before the Nicene Council in the late 2nd, 3rd, and 4th centuries. They are roughly listed in chronological order. This Kindle edition includes a good table of contents with links to each author, then to each book, and then to each chapter. It also includes links to footnotes (they are at the end of each chapter) that I found to be useful. It is well formatted, though as another reviewer mentioned, it would be nice to have the book and author you are reading listed on the top or bottom of the Kindle so you can remember who and what you are reading.

The writers who knew the apostles include Clement of Rome (late 1st century and a friend of Peter the apostle), Mathetes (2nd century - little known about him), Polycarp (2nd century and knew John the apostle), Ignatius (early 2nd century and was a student of John the apostle), Barnabas (attributed to the apostle of the same name, but scholars think the author is a 2nd century Christian), Papias (early 2nd century and is said to have known John the apostle).Those that did not know the apostles were Justin Martyr (mid 2nd century) and Irenaeus (late 2nd century), who were a generation later than the other men.

Since the works are in chronological order, it makes is easy to see the evolution of beliefs. The earliest writers focused mainly on the importance of living the gospel and following church leaders. You could also see their pre-Trinitarian beliefs of the Father and the Son. The Father is the only unbegotten God and the Son is the only begotten God and was begotten before the beginning. He is subordinate to the Father. They are clearly separate beings. They also taught the doctrine of deification and that there were three heavens. Justin Martyr taught that the Jews of his time believed that the Father was anthropomorphic.

These men believed that they were still inspired by the Holy Spirit and testified that miracles were still occurring. Ignatius and Justin Martyr taught that creation was done by God organizing existing matter and that matter is eternal. Irenaeus later became the first Christian to teach the concept that the creation was done ex nihilo in response to the heretical teachings of the Gnostics.

Justin Martyr also touches on the doctrine of a pre-mortal existence and uses this concept to prove that God did not make men wicked, but they were that way before they were born.

They also taught that man had free will and that salvation was synergistic and good works were important.

These authors also quoted scripture and it was interesting to see some variations from modern translations and they also quoted some scriptures that we no longer have and others that we have but are not included in the current canon.

Overall, I found this source material fascinating. The translation was easy to understand and the source notes were useful. The compiler noted where translations were disputed and gave the alternates. He also gave a good summary of each author and book. I feel reading this volume has greatly enhanced my understanding of early Christian beliefs. I will continue to read the subsequent volumes. I highly recommend this first volume to anyone interested in the writings of those that knew the apostles.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Kindle edition review 20. November 2010
Von Fiachra Harte - Veröffentlicht auf

The Kindle edition of this series is nice and easy to navigate. There are none of the typical OCR typos that one associates with cheap electronic editions. I have been freeloading off the CCEL website for years. They deserve the few euro I'll pay for one or two volumes in this series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A nice, inexpensive digitization of a classic 25. Mai 2011
Von Edwin A. Suominen - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Getting in at the Beginning 27. Februar 2013
Von William H. Scarle Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf

Many are unaware that when the history of the Church recorded in the Bible ends. the story picks up with the early fathers of the Church. One can read the writings of the men who worked with the Apostles and who served the churches they founded across the empire. Of course the Fathers were not kept from error, as the Apostles were in their writting, but those interested in the growth of the Church and the witness to Jesus' death and resurrection can almost be there in the writings of the Fathers. And all this is available electronically on your Kindle. What a treat!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Antiquated and bias 25. Dezember 2014
Von Julia Jefferson - Veröffentlicht auf
The only problem is is that these books are so outdated and bias towards Protestantism. They also barely mention the Eastern Orthodox Church and even call it names that aren't used officially by our Church: like Greek Church, orthodox catholic church (notice the capitalization of Catholic, and how orthodox and orthodoxy are always in lowercase letters) , Oriental Church (which confuses it somewhat with the Oriental Orthodox family of churches in communion with each other) , etc. The translators and scribes also use absurd words like iconolatry and mariolatry, which aren't even real words, and they falsely call the veneration of Saints and the Holy Virgin or Theotokos idolatry, completely misunderstanding our theology on this sensitive topic altogether. The language is also archaic and antiquated, like saying shew instead of shown, grammatical errors like Theotokos being spelt Theotocos, etc. These books are very good when they give factual information, but forcing down Reformed theology down my throat is not very nice at all. It is about time that more modern and less bias translations were made of these books, especially ones made by my Church translated into English, with an Orthodox slant on annotations, prefaces, introductions, etc. Phillip Schaff's words directed towards other churches is less than conciliatory. Some of the examples used are also absurd and have very little to do with theology, like quoting Shakespeare and telling the readers about how one high up man in British High Society was late for a party or some such nonsense. Completely besides the point! How Oxford patronized these shoddy and unscholarly translations, is beyond me. They also seem to like espousing people like Nestorius against Cyril in the Post-Nicene Fathers collection they have made, along with other arch heretics. Very odd indeed!
