In Faith of Our Fathers: Why the Early Christians Still Matter and Always Will, popular author Mike Aquilina (EWTN) "shows us in detail how the Fathers ran with the Gospel, to our eternal benefit. They taught the faith with extraordinary wisdom and insight--and a supurb sense of how the truths they were teaching worked in real life." Knowing the Church Fathers means knowing the shoulders that the Church stands on. The early Christians are our ancestors in the faith and our brothers and sisters in Christ. As those who have gone before us, there is much we can learn from their wisdom. The Church Fathers managed to convert the pagan world in a mere two and a half centuries. "They did it without any resources, without any social or political power. They did it with the most primitive communications media. Yet their Church sustained a steady growth rate of 40 percent per decade over the course of those centuries. Maybe there’s something we can learn from them. This book is a journey into that world, a tour where your guides are the Fathers." This book is a great resource for any Catholic, especially for those in RCIA.
