Church Fathers

Reading through the Church Fathers is an immensely profitable experience. You could be reading from thinkers of the highest caliber who were part of a single, visibly united Church – persons who learned their faith from the companions of Jesus, and later on the companions of companions of Jesus. True, these books are not Scripture, but neither do they deserve to be abandoned – every Christian ought to read them.

Here is a list of my blog posts related to my reading of English translations of primary source documents related to Church history, especially the early church.

St. Clement

The Didache

Mathetes to Diognetes
