4.0 out of 5 stars Patristic Theology 16 May 2007
By John E. Halborg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is in realiy a series of small articles about various patristic subjects. It attempts to cover the whole period in a rather limited number of pages. It is also written for the general reader and so is of less help to the patristic specialist. Here the references after each article are of help. I could have wished that each of the regional Church Councils would have been dealt with separately. Anything by McGuckin, however, is going to be good.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Authority 28 Dec. 2004
By Scotty Ballantine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Professor McGuckin is the world's foremost authority on Patristics. He has gathered a wonderful collection of scholarly description and commentary. It is both a reference, and contemporary analysis. This book is indespensable.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY GOOD, BUT TOO THIN, PHYSICALLY 2 Oct. 2009
By Olivier Comte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Professor MCGUCKIN views rightly that book as an introduction, to a fundamental and fascinating subject.
He is not to be faulted: he has the talent and the knowledge to write thousands of pages.
But the reader risks the disappointment of too little information, "rester sur sa faim", as we say in France, still being hungry for knowledge. It's not a bad thing but it is a handbook.
Professor MCGUCKIN's great merit is to write about theology, when too many authors (in France, for instance) pretend to stay on an history path.
I won't discuss in detail what I think were the lost oportunities of Christianity, or the triumph of heresies.

As another starter, I would propose ENCYCLOPEDIA OF EARLY CHRISTIANITY, edited by EVERETT FERGUSON, St James Press 1990,
who stops wisely, I think at the beginnng of the 7th century.
The 9th century is more a reference to the story of the Church than to Christianity.
The two are not the same, sorry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good reference book 2 Mar. 2013
By Rebecca S. Myers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are interested in the theology of the early Christian church, this is a great reference. It provides an excellent overview of many topics, including a description of the writings and of various subjects of the writings.
