When it comes to books about the early church fathers there are many options out there. I must say that I was not really looking forward to reading this, I’ve read quite a bit about the early church and was suffering from a little fatigue, when it comes to this subject matter. I am glad that I didn’t listen to my inner lazy self.
This book is great. In fact if I was to recommend a book on the early church fathers to someone it would be this book. Unlike other books you really get to know the fathers. Their lives and circumstances present the context for what they wrote and how they contributed to God’s plan for His Church.
One of my favorite books I’ve read this year.
