What is J.N.D.'s theological view?


#1

I was wondering what the theological slant is of J.N.D Kelly. I am looking for some good historians to read. Is he non-Catholic or anti-Catholic?

From jimmyakin.org:

Ealy Christian Doctrines by J.N.D. Kelly. Kelly is a Protestant, but he’s very good about admitting how Catholic the early Fathers were.

God Bless,

JND Kelly was an Anglican. High Church Anglo-Catholic, I believe. His “Early Christian Creeds” and “Early Christian Doctrines” are outstanding. A Patristic scholar to the nth degree.
