In Awakening Faith, author James Stuart Bell presents a collection of warm-hearted exhortations to a joyful, faithful Christian life written by some of the most significant teachers of the church's first eight centuries. Avoiding dry theology in favor of spiritual insight and practical relevance, Bell's compilation features gently updated language and an eye for modern application.
A Scripture reading accompanies each of the 366 entries in this collection, along with brief biographical sketches at the back of the book, making Awakening Faith a wonderful yearlong introduction both to the Church Fathers and to the kind of Christian life to which they continue to call God's people.
