Rediscovering the Church Fathers

Who They Were and How They Shaped the Church
$14.99
($17.99)

An introduction to sixteen church fathers, outlining their roles in church history and their teaching on a number of topics.

While the church today looks quite different than it did two thousand years ago, Christians share the same faith with the church fathers. Although separated by time and culture, we have much to learn from their lives and teaching.

This book is an organized and convenient introduction to the church fathers from AD 100 to 500. Michael Haykin surveys the lives and teachings of sixteen Fathers, looking at their role in such issues as determining the canon and their teaching on topics such as martyrdom and the relationship between church and state. Ignatius, Cyprian, Athanasius, Origen, and others were foundational in the growth and purity of early Christianity, and their impact continues to shape the church today.

Evangelical readers interested in the historical roots of Christianity will find this to be a helpful introductory volume.
