 Faith Under Fire, Early Church Fathers

I have always had an attraction to the faith of the early church fathers and would love to learn more of their stories.

Some of them include:

Clement of Rome
Ignatius
Polycarp
Justin
Irenaeus
Tertullian
Clement of Alexandria
Origen
Cyprian
Aphraates
Ephraem
Athanasius
John Chrysostom
Augustine
Hermas

These believers did not have many of the tools we have available to us today to spread the gospel, Printed Bibles, Online Bibles, Books, Visual aids (internet, computers, etc.), digital music instrunments, and even church buildings. Yet, they succeeded in evangelizing the known world, (Roman Empire) under heavy persecution.

Grace,
Doug

 Re: Faith Under Fire, Early Church Fathers

Hi Doug
The writings of many of these men can be found Christian Classics Ethereal Library In some cases their writings provide a fascinating glimpse into early church conditions and can help our understanding of the scriptures. In other cases their writings are contrary to scripture. Their theologies too are orthodox and heretical; so read carefully.

woops! these are all in Greek. let me see if I can find some English versions.
