How Greek Philosophy Corrupted the Christian Concept of God brings profound new insights to the Trinitarian doctrines of orthodox Christianity. with clear and precise documentation, the book shows how these doctrines migrated into early Christianity from Greek philosophy. the various aspects of Trinitarian belief are isolated, linked to their Greek sources, and carefully analyzed to show they differ radically from biblical teaching. the writings of early church fathers, portrayed in their historical context, show that during the second century, theological concepts taught in Platonism were adopted as Christianity struggled to end Roman persecution. Emperor Marcus Aurelius, a famous Stoic philosopher, was putting Christians to death because their belief did not conform to the Hellenized religion of the day. the book shows that the early Church Fathers sought to save their people's lives by redefining the Christian God in Greek terms. Their efforts brought metaphysics to Christianity and ushered in concepts like the Trinity. After presenting the historical setting in which these philosophical errors were embraced as Christian doctrine, the book compares orthodox Christian theology today, called classical theism, to biblical teachings. the book identifies how Greek phillosophy has influenced major atributes of God taught in classical theism. the book constitutes a major challenge to those who accept the tenants of classical theism but do not know the many aspects of their doctrine that are based on Greek philosophy.

This small book, the last work of a world-renowned scholar, has established itself as a classic. It provides a superb overview of the vast historical process by which Christianity was Hellenized and Hellenic civilization became Christianized. Jaeger shows that without the large postclassical expansion of Greek culture the rise of a Christian world religion would have been impossible. He explains why the Hellenization of Christianity was necessary in apostolic and postapostalic times; points out similarities between Greek philosophy and Christian belief; discuss such key figures as Clement, Origen, and Gregory of Nyssa; and touches on the controversies that led to the ultimate complex synthesis of Greek and Christian thought.

»Dieses Buch ist der bisher wichtigste Beitrag, der aus den Debatten der letzten Jahrzehnte in der Theologie der Religionen und der Komparativen Theologie hervorgegangen ist.« (Alan Race) Religionen erheben Anspruch auf Wahrheit und definieren Identität. Aber wie erklären sie die religiöse Vielfalt? Und wie gehen sie mit ihr um? Müssen sie nicht mit dem Gedanken Ernst machen, dass Wahrheit in Vielfalt besteht? Dieses Buch zeigt, dass alle großen religiösen Traditionen zu einem solchen Umdenken in der Lage sind, ja, dass dieses bereits begonnen hat. Es entsteht ein neues Verständnis von Theologie: als eine gemeinsame, interreligiös durchzuführende Aufgabe, bei der alle einander ebenso bereichern wie herausfordern. Der Weg zu einer Theologie der Zukunft Das Fundament für ein neues Selbstverständnis der Religionen Religiöse Wahrheit und die Einheit in Vielfalt Ein neues Denken gegen die Gewalt zwischen den Religionen
