This is a wonderful way to start to read some of the Church Fathers. Who are the Church Fathers? These are the christians and theologians of the second, third and fourth centuries whose writings survive. They give a wonderful insight into the life of the early Church and they are often neglected by Christians. This book is laid out very simply, with a prayer, confession, Bible reading and then some reflections by a wide variety of Church Fathers. This is indeed an ideal Lenten Devotional and, as I have said, is a wonderful introduction to the Church Fathers. Don’t be surprised if after using this book you find yourself wanting to read more of the Fathers.
