Essential reading for reconstructing early Christianity, the writings of Eusebius of Caesarea (ca. 260-340 C.E.) have held a central place for historians of early Christianity. Eusebius's Ecclesiastical History frequently stands on the scholar's shelf alongside the writings of Josephus or Philo of Alexandria. While apologists like Irenaeus and Origen have stood squarely in the spotlight, Eusebius has remained in the shadows. Kofsky contends that the value of Eusebius's own apologetic and theological writings has been neglected. He corrects this deficit and invites us to see Eusebius as a "contender for the faith" in his own right. To accomplish his goal, Kofsky takes us on a detailed tour of two of Eusebius's key documents: Eusebius's Praeparatio Evangelica and Demonstratio Evangelica.
