Christ in the Early Christian Hymns
From the first days of the church, Christians confessed their faith in Jesus Christ in both theological discussion and in popular hymns of devotion. After the major church councils from Nicaea to Chalcedon brought clarification and definition to Christological doctrines, the hymns began to express clearly this belief in Jesus as truly God and truly human. Were the new Christological doctrines deductively developed and imposed by the councils? Or did they arise from the beginning out of the fait...

The Beginnings of the Church
The Beginnings of the Church masterfully summarizes the dramatic shifts in the way scholars understand the first-century Church. Using the latest scholarship, Frederick J. Cwiekowski traces the church’s story from its origins in the ministry of Jesus to the end of the New Testament period. Cwiekowski reviews the ministry of Jesus, the Resurrection, Pentecost, and how these events formed the mission of the early church. He discusses growth and development in the ancient church, the death of the apostles, the fall of Jerusalem, the entrance of the Gentiles into the church, and the gradual separation of the church from Judaism. Ecumenical in its scope, The Beginnings of the Church is a valuable guide for church historians, seminarians, and priests.

Origen: Treatise on the Passover and Dialogue of Origen with Heraclides and His Fellow Bishops on the Father, the Son, and the Soul
The Treatise on the Passover was written around AD 245. Its central insight is that the Passover is not a figure or type of the passion of Christ, but a figure of Christ himself. The Dialogue with Heraclides was written between AD 244 and 249. It is the record of an unknown meeting—probably a synod—of bishops called to discuss matters of belief and worship. Both pieces come from the last decade of Origen’s ministry, when he was at the height of his powers.
