A Patristic Reader: A Collection of Brief Essays on Historical, Theological, and Intellectual Issues in the Spirit of the Holy Fathers

   
by Archbishop Chrysostomos, John V. Petropoulos, Bishop Auxentios, and Hieromonk Patapios

“The Fathers of the Church must be read in the light of this journey from ancient wisdom to the perfect revelation of truth that is at the core of the Christian way of life. They not only teach us about wisdom and human action that bring us into harmony with the world around us, but they bring the spiritual path and wisdom into eternal unity in Christ—the Way and the Truth (St. John 14:6)—and man and God into Theanthropic communion. If the ancients taught us much about human goodness and consonance with God, the Fathers teach us about human perfection and union with God. In that fullness only can we understand their message concerning the essence of the pure Christian Faith; and it is that message which the following essays strive to convey.”
