Book Description

Patristic Study concentrates almost solely on the Fathers of the first five centuries. After reviewing these writers, Dr. Swete proceeds in the closing chapters to recommend ways of applying the work of the Fathers for the objectives of those in different religious and theological studies. Patristic Study endeavors to draw the attention of the reader to the enormous storehouse of wisdom which are found in the writings of the Fathers of the ancient church. Pillars of Christian thought in the early Christian life, the Church Fathers are still extremely important. As Henry Barclay Swete states, “The Fathers, in the stricter sense of the term, are the great champions of orthodox belief.” Andrews will give the readers a thrilling account of first-century Christianity. When and how did they come to be called Christians? The Holy Spirit in first century Christianity.
