The Search for the Christian Doctrine of God: The Arian Controversy, 318-381
by Hanson, R P C.
Edinburgh (1997): T. & T. Clark. Thick Large Octavo. . xxi, 931p.; index. notes. The most complete study of the Arian controversy produced in the English-Speaking world. Several scholars in reviewing this major work noted no single scholar escaped the author's critical scrutiny. He writes as their contemporaries would have understood their thoughts; whether it is Arius, Athansius or the Cappadocian Fathers, we are there as the proponents discussed the fine points of theology just as in those eras the common person wanted to know these issues so they would know to whom they would sell their fish or bread loaves. What makes his comprehensive study even more useful is the fine points noting the turning points of church history in relation to the doctrine as well as how each item has appeared throughout the history of the church including those dissenting religious groups that proliferated in the 19th century. Bound in black cloth, spine lettering silver. A fine bright copy in fine bright dust jacket. (Inventory #: 018968)
