Did the early Christians misrepresent Jesus? Many modern theologians believe that the development of the church is a corruption of the original gospel message. Bray explores this disturbing trend, offering a clear defense of orthodox Christianity as reflected in the creeds and statements of the early church.
A key question that any theologian has to consider is 'How reliable a picture of Jesus Christ do we get from the Bible and the early Church writings?'. The purpose of this book is to explain in simple terms what the early church believed and why it developed its theology in the way that it did. Through scrupulous research Gerald Bray has pieced together the evidence that indicates that the early Church knew exactly who Jesus was and was careful not to embellish the reports and writings about him. He shows the mistakes made by liberal scholars of the 18th century - many of which are perpetuated in ignorance at seminaries today.
