The Fathers of the Church exhorted believers in the face of persecution while fighting heresies and misunderstandings. They were theologians and philosophers, orators and pastors, leaders and problem solvers, martyrs, and heroes. Pope Benedict carefully explains the stories of their rich history and the vital role each one plays not only in preserving the Church at the time, but also in anchoring the Church of today as well as the future. Bring your faith to life with the spark of history as told by the Pope himself. Gain fuller understanding of what the Church reaches and why through the critical efforts and experiences of our early Church fathers.
