"This selection of writings from the most important moments in the history of Christianity has become established as a classic work. Now incorporating a wealth of new material, this new edition will be an essential reference source for anyone interested in the Christian Church." "While retaining the original material selected by Henry Bettenson, Chris Maunder has added a substantial section of more recent writings. These illustrate the Second Vatican Council; the theologies of liberation; Church and State from Thatcher's Britain to Communist Eastern Europe; Black, feminist, and ecological theology; ecumenism; and inner-faith dialogue."--Jacket

There is now a wide and growing appreciation of the value and relevance of the writings of the Fathers of the early Church, even for non-academic readers, and particularly for all who wish to understand Christian doctrine. The authors presented in this volume are the principal writers of the Church in the Roman Empire from the period immediately after the New Testament down to the age of Constantine and the Council of Nicaea. The editor has selected passages to display as full as possible the thought of the early Fathers, especially on the great doctrinal themes, and has himself translated them afresh, with brief annotation where necessary
Concerning the city of God against the pagans by Augustine( Book )

35 editions published between 1968 and 2003 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"St. Augustine, bishop of Hippo, is one of the central figures in the history of Christianity, and City of God is one of his greatest theological works. Written as an eloquent defence of the faith at a time when the Roman Empire was on the brink of collapse, it examines the ancient pagan religions of Rome, the arguments of the Greek philosophers and the revelations of the Bible. Pointing the way forward to a citizenship that transcends worldly politics and will last for eternity, City of God is one of the most influential documents in the development of Christianity." "This edition contains a new introduction that examines the text in the light of contemporary Greek and Roman thought and political change. It demonstrates the importance of religious and literary influences on St. Augustine and his significance as a Christian thinker. There is also a chronology and a bibliography."--Jacket
