I have poured over this book and read it several times a week along with Roman history to give me context. Its important for Christians of every kind to read this book or David Bernards treatment of the same subject. The reason being that most official church histories completely ignore pertinent facts about what most Christians believed in the 2nd and 3rd centuries before the council of Nicea. According to early Trinitarian or Logos doctrine proponents most of Christian believers were modalistic monarchians.
But you never hear that from Modern church historians and its so incredibly disingenuous to supposedly pride themselves on the truth and yet hide such pertinent facts. Now here is my beef with Mr. Chalfant with all due respect of course.
He is a believer in the theory that Montanists were logos or trinitarian believers and I just don't think the evidence supports this fully. There are at least two instances where Montanists were associated with oneness believers and were actually said to be teaching modalism.
Chalfant completely ignores this evidence or is somehow unaware of it. In addition Chalfant bases his view that the Montanists were logos believers by the mere fact that Tertullian was a montanist. However he joined Montanism between years after its founding.
I think the MOntanists as with many groups are a little bit more complicated than Mr. Chalfant is giving them credit for. At the time that Montanism began as Justin Martyr pointed out, most Christians were modalistic or some form of it. So to think that Montanists came out of shoot holding a logos christology that was just beginning is hard to believe.
I just think that the subject of Montanism is screaming to be addressed by modern day scholarship instead of being relegated to a footnote. One person found this helpful. You're book is such a blessing. William Chalfant does an excellent job of filling in the gaps of church history with carefully-researched examples of defenders of the truth of the Oneness of the Godhead. A useful book and a good read. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. To ask other readers questions about Ancient Champions of Oneness , please sign up.
