Includes a chapter on the Life and Character of Origen.

The author seeks to be expository in his comments, rather than critical, yet it is obvious that he does not think that the Greek church remains faithful to the Bible. As to Origen, "[it is] important to note that while Origen valued dogma, he abjured dogmatism. He refused to make man's blessedness conditional upon the acceptance of certain shibboleths. Although speculative to the verge of audacity, he never failed to distinguish between his own opinions and the rule of faith as contained in the Holy Scripture." - Introductory Note.
