History of the Christian Church, Volume I: Apostolic Christianity.A.D. 1-100. Philip SchaffHistory of the Christian Church, Volume I: Apostolic Christianity.A.D. 1-100. Philip SchaffPREFACE TO THE REVISED EDITION As I appear before the public with a new edition of my Church History, I feel more than ever the difficulty and responsibility of a task which is well worthy to occupy the whole time and strength of a long life, and which carries in it its own rich reward. The true historian of Christianity is yet to come. But short as I have fallen of my own ideal, I have done my best, and shall rejoice if my efforts stimulate others to better and more enduring work. History should be written from the original sources of friend and foe, in the spirit of truth and love, "sine ira et studio," "with malice towards none, and charity for all," in clear, fresh, vigorous style, under the guidance of the twin parables of the mustard seed and leaven, as a book of life for instruction, correction, encouragement, as the best exposition and vindication of Christianity. The great and good Neander, "the father of Church History"--first an Israelite without guile hoping for the Messiah, then a Platonist longing for the realization of his ideal of righteousness, last a Christian in head and heart--made such a history his life-work, but before reaching the Reformation he was interrupted by sickness, and said to his faithful sister: "Hannchen, I am weary; let us go home; good night!" And thus he fell gently asleep, like a child, to awake in the land where all problems of history are solved. When, after a long interruption caused by a change of professional duties and literary labors, I returned to the favorite studies of my youth, I felt the necessity, before continuing the History to more recent times, of subjecting the first volume to a thorough revision, in order to bring it up to the present state of investigation. We live in a restless and stirring age of discovery, criticism, and reconstruction. During the thirty years which have elapsed since the publication of my separate "History of the Apostolic Church," there has been an incessant activity in this field, not only in Germany, the great workshop of critical research, but in all other Protestant countries. Almost every inch of ground has been disputed and defended with a degree of learning, acumen, and skill such as were never spent before on the solution of historical problems. In this process of reconstruction the first volume has been more than doubled in size and grown into two volumes. The first embraces Apostolic, the second post-Apostolic or ante-Nicene Christianity. The first volume is larger than my separate "History of the Apostolic Church," but differs from it in that it is chiefly devoted to the theology and literature, the other to the mission work and spiritual life of that period.… (mer)

A good old classic even if severely outdated covering the first 100 years of Christianity, which covers the time from Jesus to the Apostles. The 1st ed. is dated 1858; the revised, which I have that was printed in 1985, has a new preface dated 1890).

In any case, Shaff expounds historically upon all the NT. He offers a pretty good resource to see the different schools of theological thought during his era that maybe gives a hint of understanding as to how we've arrived into the various schools of thought in our own time.

Schaff has some observations regarding Jesus' ministry (p.104-105) as, for example, "He taught the purest doctrine, as a direct revelation of his heavenly Father, from his own intuition and experience..."; and, "The miracles or signs which accompanied his teachings are supernatural, but not unnatural, exhibitions of his power over man and nature; no violation of law, but manifestations of a higher law..."

Leaving the best for last, Schaff's discussion on the Apocalypse was for me, I can only say, exciting.

I'm sure there are more modern thorough histories of the Christian church, yet, however outdated, it was an enlightening read. ( )
