Introduction The manuscript tradition of the Ecclesiastical History perhaps best represents the trepidation with which mainline Christianity has interpreted Eusebius. Ernest Lefever addresses these provocative questions with vigor and shrewd sense of history. Major figures such as Eusebius and Athanasius are examined, and important but overlooked figures such as an anonymous non-Nicene chronicler and Philostorgius are also included. Finally, it explores two issues central to Industrial Revolution costing — the relationship between technological change and cost management, and the paradigmatic approaches that have predominated in costing historiography. The work approaches church histories as narrative myths of community origins produced by worshipping communities standing in continuity to local schools of thought. Ferguson has helped us better understand how ancient church history worked, and in the process he has shown us the potential of modern historiography. But states of affairs violate Hume's prohibition of necessary connections between distinct existences.

The unnamed scribe captures the essence the church's treatment of Eusebius: of questionable orthodoxy because of some of his writings and actions during the fourth century, but nonetheless the author of a history of the early church which was absolutely critical and indispensable for the church's self-understanding. Essays from authors of diverse backgrounds - British and American, civilian and military - come together to present an overwhelming argument for the necessity of the study of the past by today's military leaders in spite of these challenges. The book is particularly useful for persons interested in examining the development of doctrine in the fourth century from fresh perspectives. The essays of Part I examine the relationship between history and the military profession.

Is it an ancient tradition that includes historical information about the reigns of Saul and David? Chapter 2 focuses on Eusebius of Caesarea, especially Book X of the Ecclesiastical History and the Life of Constantine. As a boy, Kirk barely survived.

This review of the history is a departure with more emphasis on key events and players and less on detail. The essays of Part I examine the relationship between history and the military profession. There is however, a counteracting dramatic effect occurring upon the community itself. And what is the special connection between him and Caleb - the Judahite hero remembered for his valor during the wars of conquest? The Past Is Prologue: Origenism in Book X of the Ecclesiastical History. The work also consciously includes marginalized non-Nicene sources, and there are chapters which examine an anonymous non-Nicene chronicler and the Ecclesiastical History of the Eunomian Philostorgius of Borissus.
