The writings of the Church Fathers are regularly lauded but rarely read, partly because their sheer volume is so daunting. Yet they constitute the 'first story' of the Christian faith, built upon its apostolic foundation, which we ignore at our peril.
Patristic scholar James Payton has made the Fathers easily accessible by selecting passages that are devotionally stimulating, doctrinally thought-provoking, or epigrammatically striking. With his help, the average Christian can find comfort, challenge and inspiration in the Church Fathers.
