Pelikan's work is a fine contribution to the renewal of Christianity in all its dimensions. Volume One, The Emergence of the Catholic Tradition (100-600,) is the history of this critical, troubled time. Pelikan focuses upon the subtle relationship between what the faithful believed, what teachers, both orthodox and heretical, taught and what the church confessed as dogma during its first 6 centuries of growth.

A phenomenal Work
Date:January 23, 2012
A phenomenal book by Jaroslav Pelikan. "The Emergence of the Catholic Tradition(100-600)" is the first of five in his series The Christian Tradition: A History of the Development of Doctrine. Pelikan follows the development of doctrine from the year 100 through 600. I found it absolutely intriguing how the early church came to understand the doctrines that we take for granite. There is so much to learn and gain in understanding in this book I strongly recommend you to read it.
