    1. Offered as a primer on Classical Christian doctrine -- based in part on the Nicene Creed -- addresses basic doctrinal elements in light of scripture and the early church. For the most part looks at theologians from Justin to Augustine. I would classify the approach as moderately traditional/orthodox. It is a basic primer, so nothing that will appear new, but covers most of the bases! Ron Heine teaches at my alma mater -- Northwest Christian University. For a more indepth review, check my blog re [...]

I would recommend it [...]



    3. In interest of full disclosure I was a student of Ronald Heine and count him as a friend. Much of the material in this book I have heard him lecture on and it was fun to find this book at the library.

The chapters are short, I read one a night for a couple of weeks, the key figur [...]


    4. This excellent book discusses the essentials of the early Christian faith. It is valuable for Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant Christians. It is very clearly written.
