I thumbed through this set, stopping to read little bits here and there, because I was more interested in one of the other sets. From what I read, I am very anxious to finish the set I am on, although it takes a while to read and digest 14 volumes of outstanding writings. I said in a review of one of the other sets that this would make a fine addition to a person who desired to teach Christian History, and I will add that it will bless anyone who reads them. If you do purchase them, be nice and lend them out to folks who will care for them but might not be able to afford them so they might also be blessed with the truths that are contained in these volumes. I am stoked that the Lord provided the money for the purchase of this whole set. It has been a blessing.
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.
