Early Christian Fathers by Henry Bettenson
Book DescriptionThere is now a wide and growing appreciation of the value and relevance of the writings of the Fathers of the early Church, even for non-academic readers, and particularly for all who wish to understand Christian doctrine. The authors represented in the volume, first published in 1956, are the principal writers of the Church in the Roman Empire from the period immediately after the New Testament down to the age of Constantine and the council of Nicaea (AD 325). They include St Ignatius of Antioch, St Justin, Tertullian, St Irenaeus, St Clement of Alexandra, Origen, St Cyprian, and St Athanasius. Bettenson has selected passages to display as fully as possible the thought of the early Fathers, especially on the great doctrinal themes, and has himself translated them afresh, with brief annotation where necessary.

US Kirkus Review » These selections from the writings of the Fathers from St. Clement?? of Rome to Athanasius cover the period from the close of the New Testament writings down to the Council of Nicea (AD 325). There can be no understanding of the growth and development of Christian doctrine apart from some knowledge of the writing of the leaders of the Church in its formative years. Heretofore it has been difficult to have ready access to the work of these writers. These selections have been made by Mr. Bettenson, and translated afresh so that both academic and non-academic readers might the more readily become acquainted with their significant work. Students of Church history and doctrine will find this invaluable. (Kirkus Reviews)
