Reblogged this on Talmidimblogging.
I can’t find contact information for you. So I shall leave my question here.
In your view, what are a view of the best resources for understanding the Council of Nicea? I am researching some information for a friend of mine.
A couple of excellent reads/well respected suggestions:
Lewis Ayers, “Nicaea and Its Legacy”
John Behr, “The Way to Nicaea”/”The Nicene Faith” series (three volumes)
Khaled Anatolios, “Retrieving Nicaea”
If you (or your friend) has further questions/clarifications, feel free to follow up either here or at prahlowjj [at] slu.edu
Also, thanks for the reminder that I should make my contact information more prominent here.
