A renowned theologian examines the work of the six scholars who shaped his career. A companion book to Frend's "The Early Church", it shows the evolution of his thought throughout his career. Including precis of the thoughts of: Adolf von Harnack, Hans Lietzmann, Stephane Gsell, Sir William Ramsay, Mgr Louis Duchesne and Norman Baynes, it will appeal to acadamics and interested lay persons.

W. H. C. Frend

W H C Frend was formerly Professor of Ecclesiastical History in the University of Glasgow.

"This is an unusual and fascinating book. It gathers six studies of important scholars of the Early Church who were formative influences on the author (...) SCM are to be congratulated on producing a book which charts the intellectual biography of this author: it is personal, informative and sometimes moving. It might also motivate some to follow Frend in the path of serious patristic scholarship." Mark D Chapman, Ripon College Cuddesdon.

"Frend's book, with its blend of biography and autobiography, does indeed trace the move from dogma to history of the last century, while it also highlights the problems of the discipline and the struggles of major scholars to combine faithfulness to their subject matter with loyalty to their Christian tradition." Alastaire H. B. Logan, University of Exeter, 2006.
