This review is from: The Christian Faith: In the Doctrinal Documents of the Catholic Church (Hardcover)
I found this book excellent, and easy to read. It contains original texts in translation from the 3rd Century up to and including the 20th Century (the book was published 2001). Not only is it an excellent source book for anyone wanting to learn more about Christianity in general, the texts also - where dealing with concerns of their time - also give an insight into how Christianity developed over the centuries.
While the post-Reformation documents included are indeed Catholic Church documents, the ones before the Reformation are - of course - documents of the Christian church as a whole. Similarly, the ones before the schism of the Eastern and Western Christian churches are those of the 'original' Christian church.
