5.0 out of 5 stars Complex Truths in Simple Language 22 April 2003
By Rev. Gerald Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Peter Toon, a Church of England clergyman, gives a concise and clear history of the foundational councils of Christianity (the Seven Ecumenical Councils 325-481 A.D.) and goes beyond their history to explain in simple language the controverseies which prompted them as well as the definitive statements with which the Church Fathers refuted them. I cannot over emphasize the plain and yet fully comprehensive way in which Toon lays out the complex information contained in this volume. It is a wonderful tool for the Layman and a great starting point for the theological student.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful overview of the history and statements of the councils 23 July 2009
By C. Stephans - Published on Amazon.com
I found Toon's writing about the Seven Ecumenical Councils enlightening and easy to follow. He discusses the history behind each of the councils, including the theological conflicts leading to them. He details the statements of each of the councils and explains the meaning in simple language. He highlights the heresies combated by the councils and goes into some detail regarding the theological issues behind the conflicts. This book is an excellent resource for study of the Trinity and the nature of Jesus as fully God and fully man. The seventh council deals with icons, and Toon offers a well-written account of the conflict relating to icons in the church. This book is highly recommended as offering clear examples of what is orthodox Christianity regarding views of the Trinity especially. It is very relevant in today's church.
