Documents of the Christian Church – Henry Scowcroft Bettenson – Google Books
Very affordable second-hand copy. Documents of the Christian Church furnishes the reader with key documents from the history of the church. Essential reading for thinking Christians.
So much heresy and just-plain-nonsense would be cleared away if Christians knew what their wise, wonderful, and supremely intelligent ancestors wrote on various issues. I love to read original documents. I like beytenson hear authors from centuries ago.
In this book, you can read extracts from documents of the Christian world from classical times to not-so-long-ago. You can read descriptions of Christians being persecuted; ancient debates that still rage; some issues are deep and still unresolved; others are more like “How many angels can fit on the head of a pin? This is a book for dipping. There is no need to read it from cover to cover. But – what would Jesus make of these documents? I’d love to ask Him.
Excellent resource for church history course that makes accessible portions of essential church documents discussed in a church history course. O highly recommend this work for providing the student the opportunity to engage with the primary documents on the bare essentials level. I agree with other reviewers that this is an indispensable volume for anyone studying the history of Christianity.
Documents of the Christian Church
Also, the use of primary sources, which is a hallmark of vhristian classical school movement, allows you to examine the actual words of a document rather than having it filtered through someone else’s point of view.
I realize not every document could be included, but I was disappointed that Urban II’s speech calling for the Crusades was not included as it has relevance to world politics today.
Also, some longer works, such as The Ghe of St. Benedict, have been ellipted so one must still look elsewhere to get the complete work. Still, this is a fabulous, reasonably priced volume to have at hand. A good collection of many of the documents relevant to the growth of our Lord and Savior’s church over the centuries.

Provides insight into our faith as it developed in the larger church. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Documentw documents in this collection are essential first-hand accounts, and thus essential reading for anyone interested in the early formation of the Christian Church.
I purchased the item for my Kindle so I could read them in any location, but the navigation made this difficult. Also, since I was reading this book with a group, it was difficult to match up the Kindle locations with the actual printed pages.
It depends what kind of convenience you need – convenience of reading, or convenience of locating things. This is simply a collection of primary sources with brief explanations to provide historical context.
Some of it may be a bit tedious, but such is the nature of the sources themselves and not at all a fault of this book. When one considers the sheer volume of potential documents church history offers us to read, Bettenson has done a wonderful job of sifting out much that would be redundant or unnecessary for today’s reader. What’s left is a valuable glimpse into issues and discussions that have occupied writers and thinkers over many generations.
Love that I can see primary documents from antiquity compiled in one source.
