Irenaeus of Lyons

As I have noted before, interest in Irenaeus of Lyons continues to grow. He is certainly one of the most interesting and influential of the sub-apostolic Fathers. A book set for August release looks at him: Sara Parvis and Paul Foster, Irenaeus: Life, Scripture, Legacy (Fortress Press, 2012), 240pp. 

About this book the publisher tells us:
Champion of martyrs, scourge of heretics, erudite theologian, shrewd politician—no account of early Christianity is complete without careful consideration of Irenaeus of Lyons. Here a team of international scholars examines aspects of the saint’s life, historical context, engagement with scripture, and his ecclesiastical and theological legacy for succeeding generations.
