Released in 2004, The Nicene Faith examines the theological reflection of the 4th century, beginning with the church shaking debates that led to Council of Nicaea and ending with their resolution at the Council of Constantinople. A break from The Formation of Christian Theology series, the book provides a vision of Christian theology that challenges the reader to rethink the modern historical approach to theology-a discipline that has become ever more fragmented in its study.

John Behr does a wonderful job introducing some key players in the 4th c. Trinitarian debates surrounding the Christian doctrine of God. The 4th c. was a pivotal century for Christians learning how to faithfully articulate what it means to worship Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Behr's style is readable. Someone new to the field should have no problem hearing Behr's arguments and making sense of them. Behr's Orthodox (i.e. Eastern) commitment shines through at times, but with a great deal of charity and ecumenical concern toward Christians within Western traditions(Catholics and Protestants). Recommended!

Having read several books about the fourth century Fathers, theology, councils, etc., this book still managed to be engaging and informative. The strength of this book is Behr's very thorough explication of the writings of the Fathers themselves. He manages to analyze the individual writings very lucidly while giving the overall picture of the time period in which the writings were composed. This book along with Ayers' Nicene and its Legacy are musts for those looking for a balanced and nuanced description of fourth century theology.

superb - discussions of pure faith.

This would be a wonderful book, but it is not designated correctly. Volume two is indeed two parts, but this book only contains the second part. The first part is another book. This needs to be corrected and sold as a single section of two parts.
