The quality of the books is excellent if presentation is important. The scope and readability is just an awesome and pure fountain of nectar for the serious talmid of foundational doctrinal and devotional manna. For the non-Christian pilgrim or researcher, you will find frank and startingly honest insight into the genesis of Christianity, far from the prejudiced rhetoric of modern media.
If I had to pay the full retail price it would be worth it. It gives the reader a better picture of church history (primitive) and the introduction of various doctrines or teachings that developed over the course of it's history...It's nice to see that the early church baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins according to scriptures...there is so much more to this set that I don't have enough space to write them all. Buy it you will not be disappointed.
This is probably the most significant source of information to see for yourself what the early church taught after the New Testament. I recommend this especially for all theology students, pastors, and church libraries.
This is probably the most wonderful book set I've ever come across. Many of these volumes each contain several books which includes the story of Saint Anthony. When it first came and I had a good look at the set all I could do was sit on my couch and stare at it. I think I was in a state of shock. Then I dashed back to the site to see if it was still on sale and bought a second set for my bedroom. I am unglued it is so magnificent.
These books get a five star rating because of the unbeatable price! They are supprisingly nice for the price offered here on christianbook.com. A very useful reference for those who are interested in church history and development. If you have been considering a set of the church fathers... Look no further.
