Interest in the ways of the early church has never been more intense. What did early Christians believe about the divinity of Christ? What did they think about resurrection? Now, for the first time, a unique dictionary has been developed to furnish ready answers to these questions and others like them. David W. Bercot has painstakingly combed the writings of these early Christian leaders and categorized the heart of their thinking into more than 700 theological, moral, and historical topics to create this book.

Review 1 for A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs, Slightly Imperfect
Date:November 14, 2009
What an awesome book! Well written and easily organized. A valuable reference tool that demonstrates wht the pre-Nicean church fathers taught and believed on various and specific issues such as the rapture, the trinity, etc. Bercott effectively demonstrates that the the early church believed completely in free-will and essentially denied predestination as is understood in Calvanism, but both Calvanists and Arminians will benefit greatly. An invaluable resource!
