The sample pages speak of the 26 chapters on the 26 Fathers. "The Companion Guide shows that the Fathers are much more than wise men from ages past who sacrificed more than their lives for what they believed: they are teachers and philosophers, orators and pastors, leaders and problem solvers, martyrs and heros whose stories and examples are still relevant today."
Mike Aquilina is thought of as the best writer and speaker on the Early Church Fathers today. He set out to know these men years ago and has done it. When you hear Mike speak on the Fathers, you will feel like you know them. I, personally, have listened to Aquilina's interviews on Discerning Hearts and find I listen over and over finding something new each time. This, too, was the goal of Pope Benedict XVI!
Again, it would be easy to see groups in the Church using these two books to study and learning how our Church made it those early years. The writings of these Church Fathers is as fresh today as it was when it was written and, we are reminded, what the Church taught in those early years has been taught down through the centuries. Truth never changes.
