'A stimulating work which incorporates much valuable recent scholarship ... perhaps most striking of all is the way it manages to capture something of the wit and shimmer of the Irenaean texts themselves.' The Downside Review 'This wise and balanced book belongs in university libraries, and on the shelves of patristic scholars.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History '... detailed analysis ... Both graduate students and specialists will profit from Osborn's work.' Religious Studies Review
