Irenaeus of Lyons

Identifying Christianity

John Behr

Christian Theology in Context

  • Provides a comprehensive and positive treatment of the establishment of orthodoxy in the early Church
  • Examines the earliest methods of scriptural interpretation in the Christian tradition, how theological reflection develops out of this, and how scriptural interpretation and theological exposition fit together.
  • Seeks to present a complete picture of early Christian theology presented on its own terms (rather than later theological doctrine)
