"Historians, philologists, geographers and biblical and dogmatic theologians are all united in regarding the works of Eusebius of Caesarea as pre-eminent among the ‘sources’ for the third-fourth century of the Christian Era. And yet no work of any importance on Eusebius has appeared in English for thirty years.

"This present work is the result of many years’ labor by an Anglican parish priest who, like Eusebius himself, has refused to allow his responsibilities as a pastor to crowd out his interests as a scholar. A full biography of Eusebius is followed by a series of monographs on Eusebius’s literary work in general, his biblical scholarship both in relation to the canon and exegesis, his Christology and particularly his place in the Arian controversy, his attitude towards Greek philosophy, and (bearing in mind that he is ‘The Father of Church History’) his work as an historian and his theology of history.

"This work is welcomed by historians and theological students in particular, and also by the general reader who is interested in the origins of the Christian Church." - publisher.
