The early church fathers have always held a special place in Christian history. As the first interpreters of the gospel, readers today 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 in 365 daily readings by Nick Needham, are more than just relevant-they present the opportunity to kindle something within each reader of that same healthy and godly spirit. Features an imitation leather binding and a ribbon bookmark.
