How Four Patriarchs, Three Queens, And Two Emperors Decided What Christians Would Believe For The Next 1,500 Years
BY PHILIP JENKINS
Jenkins recounts the fascinating, violent story of the church's fifth-century battles over "right belief" that had a far greater impact on the future of Christianity and the world than the Council of Nicea a century before. The Bible is anything but clear about Jesus' true nature and identity. In fact, a wide range of opinions and beliefs about Jesus circulated in the church for 400 years until Roman and church leaders burned cities and killed thousands in an effort to stamp out what they considered heresy.
