Presenting the full translation of the "Demonstration of Irenaeus" by Dean Armitage Robinson, this book offers a detailed theological commentary by Canon Iain MacKenzie on this foundational doctrinal text. MacKenzie sets out the main theological themes throughout Irenaeus' work, and explores his method of systematic theology, Athanasius's dependence on Irenaeus, and Irenaeus' influence on doctrine in the 4th century. Highlighting the importance of this second-century theologian for theology today, this commentary and theological interpretation offers an incentive to study Irenaeus in the wider development of Christian doctrine as a cardinal figure in the appreciation of systematic theology.

A nice piece of early Christian thought

This book is not a new or critical translation. If, on the one hand, you are interested in this work for serious scholarship which involves linguistic considerations, look elsewhere. On the other hand, this is a great introduction to a very influential early Christian thinker. The Demonstration of the Apostolic Preaching contains many of the doctrines that later became enshrined in the Nicene Creed, and it is a lot shorter and easier to read than Against Heresies. The commentary, which is considerably longer than the Demonstration itself is also nicely done.
