Truly Divine and Truly Human Summary

Truly Divine and Truly Human: The Story of Christ and the Seven Ecumenical Councils by Stephen W. Need

"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.

Truly Divine and Truly Human Reviews

"* 'An admirably lucid account of the Councils' story, their achievements and vicissitudes, which will help readers to grasp both the issues at stake and the sometimes strange circumstances in which they were discussed and even settled, at least for the time being.' Professor Emeritas Leslie Houlden, Kings College, London * 'There is a real need for a popular theological study in English of all seven early ecumenical councils... Stephen Need here offers this study. In addition, he makes a still more important move: to consider the significance of these councils for the different churches today and for the relations between them.' Dr Sara Parvis, University of Edinburgh"
