George Karamanolis shows that early Christian thinkers, following the example of classical philosophy, developed a highly sophisticated method of philosophical thinking by means of which they constructed some of the most fundamental doctrines of Christianity. The book examines the character of early Christian philosophy and goes on to place the development of this philosophy in its cultural and historical context. The core of the book deals thematically with the central philosophical concerns of early Christian thinkers and counters current scholarly opinion that posits that Christianity was unable to accommodate philosophical reasoning.
