The Fathers of the Church, first published a decade ago, has become the standard popular introduction to the great teachers of early Christianity. Now, this new edition presents more material from more of the Fathers -- including authors from little-known traditions of Egypt, East Syria, North Africa, and the lands that make up modern Iran and Iraq. Also new with this edition is a section on selected "Mothers of the Church," holy women from Christian antiquity.

This expanded edition features full references and citations, a topical index, detailed bibliography, and ancient texts available in English for the first time in more than a century.

The Fathers of the Church is an excellent place to pass on those same teachings and traditions -- long established as an indispensable reference tool for clergy, seminarians, RCIA candidates, and lay Catholics who want to strive to live up to the "Faith of Our Fathers."

Review:

"An ideal introduction to the early history of the Church" -- Homiletic and Pastoral Review

"Reading this book, one grows more Catholic by the page. It will surely be a classic." -- Scott Hahn, Ph.D.,Pope Benedict XVI Chair in Biblical Theology and Liturgical Proclamation, St. Vincent Seminary, Latrobe, Pa.

"Simply a great read... a clear, compelling, accessible primer that's a gem of readability for a popular audience. I highly recommend it." -- Archbishop Charles Chaput
