Originally printed in 1885, the ten-volume set,
,brings together the work of early Christian thinkers. In particular, it
brings together the writings of the early Church fathers prior to thefourth century Nicene Creed. These volumes are noteworthy for theirinclusion of entire texts, and not simply fragments or excerpts fromthese great writings. The translations are fairly literal, providing bothreaders and scholars with a good approximation of the originals. Thisvolume has Church fathers from both the third and fourth century.These writings were heavily influential on the early Church, and forgood reason, as they are inspirational and encouraging. Thesevolumes also come with many useful notes, providing the reader withnew levels of understanding. Overall,
, or anypart of it, is a welcome addition to one's reading list.Tim PerrineCCEL Staff WriterCopyright Christian Classics Ethereal Library
