Item Description...
Overview
How did the emerging Christian ideas about God and Jesus compare with religious concepts prevalent in the Greco-Roman world? Beginning with a discussion of Paul's encounters with other religions in the Book of Acts, Grant describes Christian opposition to idolatry, the philosophical movement toward monotheism, and the development of Christian doctrine and creeds.

Publishers Description

This volume in the Library of Early Christianity series explores the early Christian movement, especially as it is described in the book of Acts, and uses information about other religions being practiced during the same time period to fill in the story of religious confliect.

The Library of Early Christianity is a series of eight outstanding books exploring the Jewish and Greco-Roman contexts in which the New Testament developed.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Divine Concepts Compete  Mar 9, 2006
Grant is a renowned historian of religion. This volume is one in a series called The Library of Early Christianity, Wayne A. Meeks, ed. Here Grant reports and analyzes the interaction of the Judeo-Christian concept of God with various pagan concepts of divinity.

He begins with a detailed analysis of the encounters of the early Christians in the Roman Empire, primarily recorded in the New Testament book of Acts. He then proceeds to various religious spheres of the world at that time through the fourth century. He specifically discusses primary concepts of God in Christian theology and popular religion.

Grant provides excellent critical detail, analysis, and reflection, as I have encountered previously in Grant's historical works on religion. He provides a coherent and useful description of the variety of thought in early Christian circles, as discussion developed on the triadic concepts of the New Testament revelation.

Grant clarifies the geographic and philosophical aspects of the various ideas. He analyzes the various Christian concepts of God, of the Son-Jesus-Logos-Wisdom, and of the "Spirit," the hardest, apparently, for the theologians to deal with systematically.

He shows how the variety of expressions arise initially from a defense of Christian thought and practice, then various more practical reflection and finally more systematic attempts in the fourth century, that led finally to what we now know as the "Trinity". He does an excellent job of portraying the interaction and mutual influences of pagan and Christian theologians.
