Book Giveaway

This week I’m offering Getting to Know the Church Fathers: An Evangelical Introduction, by Bryan M. Litfin. Here’s the catalog description and table of contents:

A Trusted Introduction to the Church Fathers

This concise introduction to the church fathers connects evangelical students and readers to twelve key figures from the early church. Bryan Litfin engages readers with actual people, not just abstract doctrines or impersonal events, to help them understand the fathers as spiritual ancestors in the faith. The first edition has been well received and widely used. This updated and revised edition adds chapters on Ephrem of Syria and Patrick of Ireland. The book requires no previous knowledge of the patristic period and includes original, easy-to-read translations that give a brief taste of each writer’s thought.

1. Ignatius of Antioch
2. Justin Martyr
3. Irenaeus of Lyons
4. Tertullian of Carthage
5. Perpetua of Carthage
6. Origen of Alexandria
7. Athanasius of Alexandria
8. Ephrem the Syrian
9. John Chrysostom
10. Augustine of Hippo
11. Cyril of Alexandria
12. Patrick of Ireland

Leave your name in the comments section no later than Friday, April 28th. I’ll draw the winner’s name that day. If I don’t hear back from the winner within seven days the book will go to another entry.

    Sort of lost as to why the earliest church writers/writings are not included….

    Also, there is a HUGE issue of the extant texts. I would not believe any of the current extant texts were especially representative in light of the massive gap between original document and meagar much latter corpus. We know what happened to the Ignatian corpus and how messed up that is….
