Hi all,

I'm currently preparing for an assignment on the council of Chalcedon.

Here are the specifications for the assignment:

Why did the Church meet at Chalcedon? What was at stake then and does what they decided matter today?

This essay asks you to define the main issues discussed at the council of Chalcedon in 451 AD. What kind of disagreement had there been which the council sought to resolve? Who were the main people or groups in the disagreement? Why did they think this was important enough to hold a council?Identify the main area of disagreement and what the council decided. Did they make the right decision? Do the specifics of what the council decided matter today, or are they obscure and irrelevant?

If anyone could recommend some good books available on Logos on this (published within the last 20 years), I'd really appreciate it!

I have already picked up:

Maybe check out "Council of Chalcedon" in the Factbook tool. This should bring up some dictionary entries and, in my library, it brings up an article by Gerald Bray titled "Can We Dispense with Chalcedon?" in the journal Themelios vol 3 no 2 (1978). The article might be of use to. Themelios can be downloaded for free, as a logos file, from the journal's website: http://themelios.thegospelcoalition.org/archive

Thanks for your help! I'm still getting to grips with the software, but the more I learn about it the more impressed I am with it. That was a fantastic article, by the way! Blessings. Chris

Chris, in my library I am also finding the following that might be useful:

Nichols, Stephen J. For Us and for Our Salvation: The Doctrine of Christ in the Early Church. Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2007. (20 hits for "Council of Chalcedon")

Anderson, James. Paradox in Christian Theology: An Analysis of Its Presence, Character, and Epistemic Status. Milton Keynes, UK; Waynesboro, GA: Paternoster, 2007. (14 hits for "Council of Chalcedon")

Perhaps? I did work in a gameshop but it was probably closer to 15 years ago now. Where was the shop?
