The Early Church: The Christian Church in the Roman Empire to AD325 (Paperback)Raymond Banks (author)
Paperback 231 Pages / Published: 15/10/2010

Raymond Banks has revised his popular text to bring it into line with the revised specification. Despite a gap of two millennia, the experiences of the early Christian Church frequently mirror those of the Church today. This is a fascinating and comprehensive examination of the beginnings of the Christian Church, from its origins in Palestine to the Council of Nicaea in AD325. Many of the concerns and developments which preoccupied the Church Fathers in these formative years were matters of their time. However, the author also draws attention to a surprising number of issues which have a resonance for Christians twenty centuries later, such as the role of women, the authority of Christian literature, the hierarchical structures of the Church, and the relationship between Church and State. Most students of the Early Church, particularly at AS and A level, will find this text very relevant to their course of study. Throughout the book, appropriate reference is made to the writings of Ignatius, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Hippolytus, Tertullian, Cyprian and Origen, among others.Each chapter contains detailed coverage of the topic tasks and questions for discussion throughout practice essay titles of examination standard
