NEW YORK (PRWEB) January 29, 2016
In “The Case against Origen and Reincarnation” (published by Lulu), author Eric Liberatos highlights the condemnation of Origen, one of the most important Christian thinkers between Paul and Augustine, due to his belief in reincarnation and the dogmatism and politics in the early Christian church.
Liberatos says many early church fathers accepted reincarnation, but the church condemned them and reincarnation because the concept would have weakened the growing power of the church.
“The majority of the population in the U.S. are Christians, and as Christians, they are interested in Christian theology and the early history of the church,” says Liberatos about the appeal of his book for readers. “Also, millions of Christians around the world believe in reincarnation even though it’s a belief incompatible to Christian dogma… this is a book for those who want to understand why reincarnation and Origen were seen as threats to the increasing power of the early church.”
Liberatos adds, “A lot of research has been conducted concerning Origen’s life and doctrine but very little has been written about his condemnation. Also, as far as I know, no book exists with the basic tenet being the condemnation of Origen, and there is no book title that places Origen and reincarnation in the same sentence.”
