Used, very good condition, hard cover with dust jacket.
This book presents the most important authors and works of the early history of Christian literature. Spanning the first seven hundred years of Christianity, Hubertus R Drobner introduces writers such as Philo, Origen, Eusebius, Jerome and Augustine, among many others. Drobner brings patristic scholarship reliably up to date in this valuable introduction. His work is sufficiently broad to be a useful summary of early Christian history and its expansive strokes of doctrinal debate and development. In addition, it provides a clear and helpful presentation of contemporary studies and views on these important writers and their works. This volume will serve well as an initial reference work for the expert,a fine textbook for the student, or an important addition to an academic library.
The book is in excellent condition, apart from some fading to the dust jacket spine. The binding is sound, the corners are sharp and the pages are all clean and unmarked. The book appears to be unread.
