Hellenistic Philosophical Influence on Early Christian Theology

Note: These are works that address the relationship between Ancient Hellenistic philosophy and the development of Christian theology over the first five centuries of Church history. Greg is most interested in those aspects of Hellenistic philosophy, primarily derived from Platonism and Stoicism that influenced early Christian thinkers to begin to embrace a Hellenistic model of perfection (e.g. God as timeless, impassible, immutable) and that influenced Christian thinking in a deterministic direction. His conviction is that both streams of influence culminate in the theology of Augustine.

Note: These are works that make the case that, prior to the fourth century “Constantian Revolution” when the church first embraced the power of the State, the church generally taught that Christians are called to abstain from all violence.

The “Dark Side” of Christendom

Note: These are works that address the violence that was carried out by the Church of Christendom throughout history. While many Christians attempt to minimize the evils done by the Church throughout history, Greg’s conviction is that followers of Jesus should openly acknowledge and denounce these evils in order to clearly distinguish the violent Church of Christendom from the true Church that follows the example of Jesus, who laid down his life for enemies.
