TEACHINGS FROM THE CHRISTIAN TRADITION – brief intro…

The Great Questions of Life are questions that can unite people across all spiritual traditions. Within the streams of of what Jesus started I find amazing treasures from East to West from Ancient to Postmodern, from the official histories and the oral traditions of the faith.

My spiritual life has been deeply nurtured by the theology of the undivided Church (ie from the time before the major schisms began in 1054ad.)

This theological mainstream grew largely from the work of C2nd-C3rd leaders, Irenaeus, Origen, Athanasius and the Cappadocian Fathers – Basil the Great, Gregory of Nyssa & Gregory Nazianzus. All Christian churches today recognize that these were the key theologians whose definitive work clarified for posterity the tenets of orthodox Christian belief.

To their theologies of humanity, God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the apostolic authority and interpretation of the Scriptures, the whole Church is deeply indebted. These are the streams you will find running through all the following posts and podcasts. Enjoy!
