Who were the Church Fathers? What did they achieve? And why are their lives and writings considered so important? D'Ambrosio dusts off the dry theology and brings you the exciting stories about great thinkers such as Ambrose, Augustine, Basil, Athanasius, Chrysostom, and Jerome. This page-turner will inspire and challenge you with surprising insights into the brilliant, embattled, and sometimes eccentric men who defined the biblical canon, hammered out the Creed, and gave us our understanding of sacraments and salvation. Written by a popular theologian and world-renowned commentator on religious affairs Insightful accounts of pioneer thinkers such as Irenaeus, Origen, Athanasius and Augustine A lively, engaging presentation for the non-specialist
'Dr D'Ambrosio has accomplished the rare feat of combining scholarship with readability. Christians of all traditions can trace their faith to these pioneers; their story is our story.' Professor David Alton, House of Lords
