What People are Saying About This
"An intensively argued study of Irenaeus...It will prove rewarding to any student concerned with questions about how and why Christian theology arose." The Journal of Religion, Robert M. Grant
"Osborn brings to his treatment of this seminal figure [Irenaeus] the depth of his knowledge acquired through many years studying the second century, to produce a thoughtful, comprehensive study that has much to offer both students of early Christianity and contemporary Christians...This volume is sure to become a standard work on Irenaeus. It is clearly and engagingly presented, comprehensive and insightful, the kind of work which can only be written after many years of serious study of the field." St. Vladimir's Theological Quarterly
