Early Church History
Analyzes Influences
of Jews and Judaism

"The Early Church" by Henry
Chadwick, published by Zenguin
Books (39 W. 55th, .NY19), takes
into account the background of
Christianity's development.
In this, the first volume of "The
Pelican History of the Church," the
author deals with the "deep sense
of continuity," emphasizing that
"various ideas and attitudes char-
acteristic of traditional Judaism be-
came and have largely remained
integral to the structure of Chris-
tian thought."
"Judaism was the religion of a
book in a way that no other an-
cient religion was," Dr. Chadwick
writes. He devotes considerable at-
tention to the Dead Sea Qumran
In his analysis of the rise of the
Church, he explains three things
about Jews — their refusal to be
associated with any pagan cult,
their observance of dietary laws
and circumcision.
Students of theology will find
a vast amount of illuminating ma-
terial in this volume, with the spe-
cial references to the relationships
of Christianity to Judaism. —P. S.
