The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Fathers of the Church: An Introduction to the First Christian Teachers - Mike Aquilina - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Fathers of the Church:

A summary of the early Christian writings.

My favorite Mike Aquilina quote from the book:

"For all the church fathers, the Eucharist was the sacrament of Christian unity."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you know the difference between apostasy and heresy?

How disciplined is your mind?

My review of The Fathers of the Church:

I had no idea how much of the early Christian writings existed until now.

This is a book to take your time with.

Lots of information and lots of details.
