Item Description...
The earliest Christian heretics. "Hultgren and Haggmark have brought together in one volume all of the major orthodox references to persons and theological movements of the first two Christian centuries that were subsequently branded as 'heretical.' In so doing, the editors have done a great service for instructors in early Christian history.. The volume's brief introduction not only helps contextualize the heterodox thinkers or movements in their time but also helps relate the concerns that they addressed in the first and second centuries to those of the late twentieth century. . For those readers as well as for scholars who would like to have a ready reference, this is a useful volume." -Church History "The Earliest Christian Heretics is a 'user-friendly' anthology that will be a great help to both the beginning student and specialized scholar and teacher of early Christianity. Whereas once the researcher had to rifle through the cumbersome volumes of the Ante-Nicene Fathers series, now she can reach for this handy compendium to find all major heresiological entries for the first two centuries presented in a simple, clear format." -Journal of Early Christian Studies "A highly useful compendium of well chosen early Christian writings (in English) directed against a wide variety of heretics, especially Gnostics." -Robert M. Grant, University of Chicago "This book fills a surprising gap. It is highly recommended as a classroom resource for college and seminary, a study guide for the interested nonexpert, and even a handy tool for the graduate student of scholar for quick reference to sources otherwise scattered." -Carolyn Osiek, Catholic Theological Union Arland J. Hultgren is Asher O. and Carrie Nasby Professor of New Testament, and Steven A. Haggmark is Associate Professor of Islamic Studies and Christian Mission and World Religions at Luther Seminary, Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent one stop source for selected 'heresies'  May 19, 2001
There were two things that made this book top notch:

1) The number of heretical leaders' works that it compiles

2) The way it is compiled

The "authors" use an excellent approach to this subject. They allow the heresies to speak for themselves. They give a small blurb of introduction before each selection, which is a perfect lead in by the way, and then they present the selections. The book is not exceptional because of what the "authors" write as much as it is due to the resource this provides. It is searchable, concise, and allows for amateur researchers to find what they need without having the full texts.

one of a kind  Jan 3, 1999
In a time where the Christian fiction literature abounds and Church history is put aside it is difficult to find books about the early church's struggle for theological purity. This books fills a much needed gap. There are no other works I have found that speak to these issues so directly. The book is mostly summary of the issues of heresies and the church's response to it. Hultgren adn Haggmark have filled the text with well documented sources which allows for great depth of research into any area of heresy of the 1st century you wish to persue. A must for understanding the core of the Christian faith.
