Product Description

While the church today looks quite different than it did two thousand years ago, Christians share the same faith in Jesus Christ with those who lived in the Patristic era of the church. Yet, all too often we forget the lessons, theological and moral, that the Fathers of the church have to teach us.

Rediscovering the Church Fathers is an organized and eminently readable introduction that prepares readers to engage with church fathers who lived from AD 100 to 500. Michael Haykin surveys the lives and teachings of several Fathers, outlining their respective roles in theological issues such as baptism, martyrdom, church-state relations. He also documents how their leadership affected the church and its mission in the world. Specific fathers covered in this book include:

  • Ignatius
  • Cyprian
  • Origen
  • Basil of Caesarea and Ambrose
  • St. Patrick
  • and others...
Each father was foundational in the growth of early Christianity, and their impact continues to shape the church today.

Evangelical readers interested in the historical roots of Christianity will find this to be a helpful introductory volume.

Michael Haykin surveys the lives and teachings of seven of the Fathers, looking at their role in such issues as baptism, martyrdom, and the relationship between church and state.

Evangelical readers interested in the historical roots of Christianity will find this to be a helpful introductory volume.

Endorsements

Haykin has given us a user-friendly introduction to the early centuries of the Christian church. He illustrates the key elements of the church’s teaching by referring to the lives and teachings of major figures of the time, most of whom are little known to nonspecialists. Ordinary people need to know about these things, and this book is a great place to begin.
-Gerald Bray,
Research Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School

This gem of a study sparkles with polished clarity. Michael Haykin has skillfully unearthed buried treasures among early church leaders. As an experienced guide, he has drawn from his own personal journey and decades of scholarly research. He presents valuable Patristic insights into apologetic engagement, missional work, spiritual formation, use of Scripture, theological discourse, communal worship, personal piety, and approaches to suffering and martyrdom. From the apostolic fathers to the apostle to Ireland, Haykin’s investigations masterfully apply classical wisdom to contemporary concerns.
-Paul Hartog,
Associate Professor, Faith Baptist Theological Seminary

In this introduction, Michael Haykin, an eminent evangelical scholar, opens the door to the riches of early Christianity for evangelicals in a splendidly concise handbook of sorts. Evangelicals, who are experiencing a renaissance of interest in the Fathers, need look no further than this volume for an introduction to many of the most significant figures in Christian history. Readers will be left wanting to learn even more. Evangelicals are indebted to Haykin for this well-written volume.
-Steven A. McKinion,
Professor of Theology and Patristics, Southeastern Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina
