    HardcoverÖ Jesus Wars eBook ↠ jesus book, wars kindle, Jesus Wars MOBIHonestly I struggled a bit to get through this The history is convoluted involving dozens of religious civil and military leaders over hundreds of years and the intricate political machinations are dizzying and difficult to keep track of not to mention the complicated theological disputes about the Trinity Christology and Mary Dr Jenkins includes maps at the beginning and several appendices that list the dramatis personae briefly explain the outcomes of the sev

    HardcoverÖ Jesus Wars eBook ↠ jesus book, wars kindle, Jesus Wars MOBIAnother good read on the history of Western culture through the lens of Christianity Jenkins covers a huge amount of information that I cannot keep straight without referencing the material What struck me was just how violently Christians attacked one another over the smallest variation in whatever was the orthodox view of the moment Any study of the history of Christianity will lead one to realize just what a human constructed faith it is and how detrimental it has been to the development of mature political and social structures since the Roman Empire I have little respect for Christianity or any other religion but Christianity is the one that most affects my culture so I feel entitled to speak to it Jenkins is not the best at keeping a reader engaged and helping the reade

    HardcoverÖ Jesus Wars eBook ↠ jesus book, wars kindle, Jesus Wars MOBIIn the plethora of current works on non orthodox early movements from the likes of excellent scholars such Bart Ehrman and Elaine Pagel plus the absurd novels of Dan Brown and his imitators which I shutter to mention in the same sentence there has been precious little recent consideration of the establishment of Christian orthodoxy from a historical perspective Into that breach steps Philip Jenkins with his interesting and readable Jesus Wars How Four Patriarchs Three ueens and Two Emperors Decided What Christians would Believe for 1500 YearsJenkins illuminates often neglected history of the competing strains of Christianity the charges of heresy and counter heresy leveled over and over again as theologians and bishops sought to settle the apparent contradictions inherent in ideas like the Trinity and “The Divine Made Flesh” If some imagine these conflicts as intellectual they were at the time c

    HardcoverÖ Jesus Wars eBook ↠ jesus book, wars kindle, Jesus Wars MOBIWho was Jesus Was he God Was he a man As a Christian I tend to wait for all of the above before answering Yet this Christology which I take for granted came at the cost of many lives and centuries of debate schism and reconciliationJenkins wades into 5th century Christian history a time at which the church should have been consolidated into the Roman Empire but was instead riven with factionalism over the nature of Christ Eastern churches based in Alexandria and later Antioch preferred to see Christ as God alone this also helped to elevate Mary as God bearer Western churches with Constantinople as a proving ground would eventually carry forward the dual nature beliefsJenkins not only provides a riveting account of the three mid 5th century councils that wrestled with this issue but he

    HardcoverÖ Jesus Wars eBook ↠ jesus book, wars kindle, Jesus Wars MOBIThis is like a 200 level history course on the history of the Church councils during the 5th century It is clearly not introductory level but for anyone who has at least a small understanding of the councils of Ephesus and Chalcedon this is an excellent source to read a fairly thorough history all in one volume My biggest com

    HardcoverÖ Jesus Wars eBook ↠ jesus book, wars kindle, Jesus Wars MOBII love reading history This post is inspired by a book I read about early Christian history Early Christian history makes the news every now and then often when a book like The Da Vinci Code tells of conspiracy theories and a real Jesus much different then the biblical one The real history is fascinatingThere are two common stories told about how the early Christian church settled on the official doctrines that many Christians still recite in creeds today1 The “they got it all from the Bible” view – Under this view in the centuries after Jesus new false teachings continued to arise These heresies all made the mistake of straying from the truth passed on through the New Testament and the solid line of orthodox right believing churches Often such heresies led to councils where Christian bishops would study the Bible and since the Bible teaching was clear inevitably vote the heresy down One most devious heresy Arianism taught that Jesus was created by God and thus
