Item Description...
Overview
The early church presbyter Hippolytus crafted the church's oldest orthodox commentary on scripture with a motif of martyrdom to encourage church congregations during a time of severe Roman persecution. Hippolytus interprets the text through allegory, typology, theodicy, parenesis, and reflection to create a motif of martyrdom. His purpose is clearly pastoral arising from his role as presbyter: to exhort his congregations to prepare to be martyred for Christ amid the Severan persecution.

Publishers Description
In the third century CE, Emperor Septimius Severus unleashed a shocking and severe persecution against the Christian church. Witnessing the fear and confusion in his congregations, the presbyter Hippolytus crafted his Commentary on Daniel to encourage Christians confronted with the reality of martyrdom and persecution. In a work which comes to us as the earliest orthodox Christian commentary on scripture, Hippolytus interprets the text through allegory, typology, theodicy, paraenesis, and reflection to create a motif of martyrdom. By doing so, Hippolytus guides Christians iin their communities as they stand heroically before the tribunal of Caesar, like the Danielic characters stood before authorities in Babylon. His purpose in the commentary is clearly pastoral, arising from his role as presbyter: to exhort his Christian congregations to prepare to be martyred for Christ amidst Roman persecution.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Hippolytus is more important than you Realize  Nov 4, 2008
Shelton has written a valuable book for preachers, theologians, and historians interested in the ancient world. Hippolytus was a church leader in the third century AD who wrote a commentary on the Book of Daniel. It's the earliest orthodox Christian commentary we know of. Hippolytus wrote to encourage his people as they faced persecution at the hands of the Romans. Though not as famous as some other early church leaders like, say, Irenaeus, Hippolytus played an important role in helping the church survive and continue to grow. Likewise, the author of this book, Shelton, has played an important role in helping us understand Hippolytus and the cultural context that helped shape his commentary on the Book of Daniel.
