by James R. Payton, Jr.

The writings of the Church Fathers constitute the "first story" of the Christian faith, built upon its apostolic foundation. Patristic scholar James Payton makes the Fathers more accessible by selecting passages that are easily applicable to the average Christian’s life. With his help, we can all find stimulation, comfort, challenge, and inspiration in the Church Fathers.
