A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs
by David W. Bercot




Overview -
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? How did they regard John the Baptist? What were the beliefs of those who sat at the feet of Jesus' disciples? 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.

Wonderfully suited for devotional or thematic study as well as sermon illustration, this resource offers a window into the world of the early church and affords a special opportunity to examine topically the thoughts of men like Clement of Rome, Ignatius, and Polycarp, who were students of the original apostles, as well as the thoughts of other great lights in the life of the early church such as Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, and Tertullian. For anyone interested in historic Christianity, this book cannot be overlooked. This book features:

  • Relevant comments on key Christian concepts from prominent figures such as Origen, Clement of Alexandria, Clement of Rome, and Hippolytus
  • Key biblical verses associated with each topic
  • Brief definitions of unfamiliar terms or concepts
  • A Who's Who of Ante-Nicene Christianity to put in context the ancient Christian writers
  • Discussion of more than 700 key theological, moral, and historical topics
  • Strategic cross-references to related topics
  • A topical index to the writings of the Ante-Nicene Fathers
