'The author combines detailed scholarship with an accessible style, and so makes the work of this important church Father accessible to a wide readership.' -- Revd Dr John Binns, Vicar of Great St Mary's, Cambridge, and an Hon. Canon of Ely Cathedral 'The author combines detailed scholarship with an accessible style, and so makes the work of this important church Father accessible to a wide readership.' -- Revd Dr John Binns, Church Times 'One would be hard pressed to think of a scholar more qualified than Frederick McLeod to produce a volume for this series on Theodore of Mopsuestia (ca. 350--428)... In this book McLeod gives an excellent introduction to the thought of Theodore, particularly those aspects of it which scholars continue to debate, and has judiciously chosen to translate texts that help illuminate these issues.' -- Mark DelCogliano, University of St. Thomas, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2010.08.21
