DESCRIPTION : How and why did the early church grow in the first four hundred years despite disincentives, harassment, and occasional persecution? In this unique historical study, veteran scholar Alan Kreider delivers the fruit of a lifetime of study as he tells the amazing story of the spread of Christianity in the Roman Empire. Challenging traditional understandings, Kreider contends the church grew because the virtue of patience was of central importance in the life and witness of the early Christians. They wrote about patience, not evangelism, and reflected on prayer, catechesis, and worship, yet the church grew--not by specific strategies but by patient ferment.

DESCRIPTION : Rev. Caram’s commentary on the history of the Church is designed for ordinary people who desire to learn more about their Christian heritage. The early Church had gradually departed from the pattern taught to them by the apostles and fell away into an era that history has termed the “Dark Ages.” However, Rev. Caram shows what brought the Church into the light of truth and how the world is still looking for those who are valiant for the truth and not afraid to proclaim it.

DESCRIPTION : The beautiful and charming translation originally made by Rev. Brownlie has stood the test of time as we can now look back and see with what elegance the very early church used in its worship of the one true God. While we today have taken worship to be more pragmatic and more existential, the original hymns of the church were mainly focused on the true theological aspects of God that made Him worthy of worship. We often have to take a step back and look at the old texts of the church to regain a truthful look at the Bible and worship is no different as this text takes us back to a time when worship was different.

DESCRIPTION : Life and Practice in the Early Church brings together a range of primary texts from the church's first five centuries to demonstrate how early Christians practiced their faith. Rather than focusing on theology, these original documents shed light on how early believers "did church," addressing such practical questions as, how did the church administer baptism? How were sermons delivered? How did the early church carry out its missions endeavors? Early Christian writings reveal a great deal about the tradition, as well as the wider culture in which it developed. Far from being monolithic, the documents which present the voices of the early church fathers in their own words demonstrate variation and diversity regarding how faith was worked out during the patristic period. The texts illuminate who was eligible for baptism, what was expected of worshippers, how the Eucharist was celebrated, and how church offices and their functions were organized. Contextual introductions explain practices and their development for those with little prior knowledge of Christian history or tradition. The pieces included here, all in accessible English translation, represent such sources as Justin Martyr, Tertullian, the Cappadocians, Cyril of Jerusalem, John Chrysostom, and Augustine.

DESCRIPTION : In the last days of the twentieth century, leading New Testament scholar and popular preacher Daniel Harrington, S.J., asked himself two powerful questions: What might the church of the first century have to say to the church of the twenty-first century? And How might a brief sythesis of what the New Testament says and does not say about the church help bring greater vitality within and unity among the churches? The result of Father Harrington's research and thinking is this timely and important book.
