Daily Readings: The Early Church FathersISBN: 9781527100435
The early church fathers have always had a special place in Christian theology. As the first interpreters of the gospel, we often find in their words a sense of the gospel's sheer freshness and reality. More than this, they were the thinkers who first hammered out the full meaning of what Scripture says about the Trinity and the person of Christ. Their sayings, presented here by Nick Needham, are more than just relevant - they present the opportunity to kindle within us something of that same healthy and godly spirit.
Nick Needham is the Church History lecturer at Highland Theological College in Dingwall and the minister at Inverness Reformed Baptist Church. Previous to this, he taught Systematic Theology at Scottish Baptist College in Glasgow. He is author of the highly collectable 2,000 Years of Christ's Power series.
Many evangelicals, otherwise knowledgeable of church history and theology, lack familiarity with and appreciation for the writings of the early Christian theologians, and that is to our detriment. The Reformers and Puritans alike, knew, respected and quoted them often.
