5.0 out of 5 stars origins and Christ's divinity, 25 July 2007

The great Harnack thought that were the historian of dogma to include within his bag of evidence the liturgy, he would be giving himself over to superstition outright. This book counters and corrects such a claim, which is also a premise in the works of the late Jaroslav Pelikan. Distinct from paganism by its monotheism, and distinct from Judaism with its binitarian (not ditheistic) devotion to Christ, Hurtado argues that the early, and limited, amount of liturgical evidence from the Christians offers an insight into the Christian understanding of God.

This and his other works are great places to start if you are interested in early church beliefs and diversity, along with Skarsaune's "In the Shadow of the Temple" and N.T. Wright's voluminous output.
