Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fathers of the Church (Paperback)
I wish I had read thoroughly the short comment on that page before buying that book
The idea in itself, [presenting the apostolic fathers thoughts] is absolutely briliant, and that book would have been a must have IF.... he did just that
halas, may be with some zealous energy, the author mixed it all with some Roman Catholic references either to catechism, or some papal encyclicals.. and in the end.. especially if you re NOT roman catholic, it becomes extremely frustrating.
I bought that book as part of a self study i m doing about the Orthodox church...
well.. there s nothing orthodox at all in that book
may be excellent for any RC new convert or any catholic with some theological interests..
i gave my copy to a local RC parish, as it was totally useless for me.
If you are investigating the orthodox church or simply want to access some patristic with an orthodox vision.. go and get the amasing "apostolic fathers" by Jack N Sparks.
