Truly Divine and Truly Human PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Truly Divine and Truly Human free pdf "Truly Divine and Truly Human" traces the fascinating story of how Christians came to proclaim Jesus of Nazareth as both 'truly divine' and 'truly human'. It follows the centuries of debate - and the Church councils - that led up to this proclamation and the years of argument and schism that followed. This declaration has remained central to Christianity down the centuries and an appreciation of how it was made is crucial not only for an understanding of Christian history but also for an understanding of Christian identity today.Here, Stephen Need examines the controversies that led up to the first seven ecumenical councils, the councils themselves, the decisions they made, the key theologians involved and the cities in which the councils were held. Written for introductory students and non-specialists, "Truly Divine and Truly Human" is a highly readable introduction to a complex and formative period of Christian history.
