Product Description

The Ante-Nicene Fathers ranges from the Apostolic Fathers to various third and fourth century sources including the liturgies and ancient Syriac documents. It was intended to comprise translations into English of all the extant works of the Fathers (with the exception of the more bulky works of Origen) down to the date of the first General Council held at Nicaea in 325 A.D. This American edition by Arthur Cleveland Coxe is a revision of the original series edited by Alexander Roberts and Sir James Donaldson and published in Edinburgh. The revision involves a major rearrangement to conform to the historical sequence, the addition of brief introductions and notes indicating variances in readings, specifying references to scripture or literature, clarifying obscure passages, and noting corruptions or distortions of patristic testimony (as forged in the Decretals). The basic aim of the translations has been to strive for literary exactness, placing the English reader as nearly as possible on an equal footing with those who are able to read the original.

Volume Titles:
Volume 1: Apostolic Fathers, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus
Volume 2: Hermas, Tatian, Athenagoras, Theophilus, Clement of Alexandria
Volume 3: Tertullian
Volume 4: Tertullian (IV), Minucius Felix, Commodian, Origen
Volume 5: Hippolytus, Cyprian, Caius, Novatian, Appendix

    When doing research it is best to go to the source to find the answers. These 10 Volumes are a storehouse of knowledge, history and sources originating from a period when the fundamentals of Christianity were being formated. Now I look forward to getting the other 28 Vols.

    The Christian Book Store made sure they were well priced, well packed, and provided a speedy delivery. Excellent Service.

    For a long time this set has been out of reach for the average person but now at the price of $99 for 10 vols of a total 38 vol set the Church Fathers are finally within the grasp of those who wish to own them. I just hope that in the future CBD ships these books out in boxes with reinforced corners as a few books arrived with dinged / damaged corners.

    That said, I am very pleased with the books themselves, they are both attractive externally and the print quality appears to be quite good too with an old-fashioned, yet easy to read font, even the small print footnotes are quite easy to read for my middle aged eyes.

    The Church Fathers and Doctors have given us an understanding of unsearchable mysteries in the Bible and their work is the foundation for continued study and advancement in discovery of the treasures of the wisdom and knowledge of God that are hidden in the Word, that have yet to be discovered. The depths of the meaning of the teachings of Jesus Christ are found here and nowhere else in the world.

    I just recieved this set of books in the mail yesterday. They have been on my wish list for quite some time at 99.99. Two weeks ago for some reason the price had dropped to 49.99 and I couldn't let the deal go so I purchased them. The quality is way beyond what I expected for fifty dollars and had I know how good they were I would have gladly paid the 100.00 bucks for this set. Absolute steal!
