    This book is an excellent collection of important Christian and Church manuscripts over history. It will teach you much- if you can remain awake long enough to do so.

    Despite the title and a couple of selections that back it up, the book was really a collection of heretical writings. Extremely uncomfortable and sometimes sickening reading and really not worth your time.

    Maybe it is because I have read a number of books on the development of Christian thought and theology, but I have really enjoyed the selections of key thinkers made by Hugh Kerr. I have read many of the works that Hugh Kerr selects from and he has been able to capture the key points of each. It has been a great refresher of 2000 years of Christian thought. It is not a book for everybody, but for those who desire to teach Christian theology it is a great book to help one focus on essentials.

It is not a book for everybody, but for those who desire to teach Christian theology it is a great book to help one focus on essentials. The book has also helped me clarify my 'druthers'. I am definitely NOT a Reformed theologian. The reformed tradition is far too certain on the methods of God and the destination of humans. I can see a severe judgment arising for the main Reformed thinkers ... Calvin, the writers of the Westminster Confession, and modern Reform theologians (John Piper, R.C. Sproul, etc). They get caught up in their intricate answers to all questions and judge other approaches as heresy. I was pleased with the openness of Origen, troubled with the dogmatism of Tertullian, amazed once again with the depth of Augustine, felt sympathy with the vision of Abeland, resonated with the mysticism of Julian of Norwich, impressed with the insights of Martin Luther (Hugh Kerr avoided Luther's harsh polemical writings), intrigued by the liberal distillation of the Gospel by Aldolf von Harnack, etc. I still think that Jonathan Hill's "The History of Christian Thought" is a better introduction to these same writers. But this book is an exceptional support book to Jonathan Hill's overview.

    Great look at Christian thought from Justin Martyr to Martin Luther King Jr. Kerr helpfully describes the writers and overviews their theology and context. It would be nice to have some recent voices...perhaps in a updated edition.

    Very helpful and organized selections of writings of important figures in the history of the Church. I especially enjoyed the brief introduction to each important Church figure. Good resource for the introductions alone!

    Excellent compendium of excerpts from select theological treatises. Successfully encompasses the development of doctrine through the centuries.
