Here begins the second part of this work, which treats of the origin, history, and destinies of the two cities, the earthly and the heavenly. In the first place, Augustine shows in this book how the two cities were formed originally, by the separation of the good and bad angels; and takes occasion to treat of the creation of the world, as it is described in Holy Scripture in the.

In her review of the first two volumes of the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture (ACCS) series plus Christopher Hall’s general introduction to the series, Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers, Robin Darling Young focuses almost exclusively on Hall’s book, charging that his portrait of the Church fathers is seriously flawed.

This book drips with contempt (e.g. 1, 16, 17) and clashes swords with the New Atheists diatribes from the Christian perspective. This is both entertaining, but also tiring. The book contains argument, but does not always point to specifics leading the reader towards assumed common understood historical facts/5.

Heresy is a form severed from its substance, hence its illegitimacy, whereas wisdom on the contrary is substance considered independently of forms, hence its universality and its imprescriptible nature. The success of heresy is due, not to an inner worth which is in fact largely absent, but to external and more or less negative causes, unless.

The aim of this book is to illustrate, from the writings of those authors on whom tradition has bestowed the name of Fathers of the Church, the process of development in Christian thought, life, and worship during the period which culminated in the acceptance of the Christian faith by the Emperor Constantine, and, what that acceptance made.

This is about the doctrine of calling, which perhaps, is initially understood by many as calling by God to exclusive spiritual work, like preaching or 4/5. This article is intended to be a resource showing the support for the doctrine of Transubstantiation in the Church fathers, and not a robust defense of the doctrine as defined by the Council of Trent.1 The Church fathers did not believe in a mere spiritual presence of Christ alongside or in the elements (bread and wine).

But not till the Unit is merged in the all, whether on this or any other plane, and Subject and Object alike vanish in the absolute negation of the Nirvanic State.

The Greek word for philosophy (philosophia) translates to the “love for wisdom” in English. The discipline dates back to ancient times with some of the greatest philosophers being Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle.

John Calvin’s Institutes of Christian Religion, perhaps more than any other book produced during the Reformation, contains the clearest theological framework of the entire Protestant movement.[1] In his life work, the renowned pastor theologian declares, “Nothing could be more stupid than the trifling of the Arians, who, while acknowledging the divinity of the Son.

Divine Simplicity. Divine simplicity is central to the classical Western concept of city denies any physical or metaphysical composition in the divine being. This means God is the divine nature itself and has no accidents (properties that are not necessary) accruing to his nature.

Let me begin here with an introductory quote to set the stage, from a book titled Fellow Workers with God: Orthodox Thinking on Theosis: It is widely accepted that there is more to reality than just our own conscious selves and the tangible world around us.
