Product Description

About the Author

Frances Young is Emerita Professor of Theology, University of Birmingham.

Review

This is a fairly personal book. It records 40 years of cut and thrust in the Church of England's General Synod and kindred bodies, as I have seen it, experienced it, and on occasion handed it out myself. Much is told from my personal standpoint, and the selection of themes derives my own involvement. It is not autobiography, but an attempt (as in my other writings) at accurate journalism. Oh yes, and remember I am not telling it the way it was. No one on earth can do that. I am telling it the way I have found it. Colin Buchanan, from the introduction to Taking a Long View."

Format: Paperback
Since using Richardson's book on the Creeds, it is useful to see an up to date work on this aspect of theology. It is a good contrast and well worth a read.

I have found this book to be very dry and for those who are looking for a clear explanation of the position of early Christianity this is a very difficult read. It is part of my study course work unfortunately! For me it lacks a clear path and I would not recommend this.

I have found this book to be clear and informative about the Patristic times of the making of the creeds for my course.
