The Theology of the Early Christians – 10 Free Classics!

Theology of Early Christians

As Christianity becomes less dominant in Western culture, we will increasingly have much to learn from the theology of the early Christians, who lived and bore witness to Christ in an empire they didn’t control.  

If you need to be convinced of the relevance of the early Christians for today, I highly recommend Alan Kreider’s book The Patient Ferment of the Early Church. If, on the other hand, you want to immerse yourself in early Christian theology, here are ten classic from the first four centuries of the church that are available as FREE ebooks!

*** All of these books are contained within the massive
Ante-Nicene / Post-Nicene Church Fathers series (37 vol)
($2.99 for Kindle or
FREE in 37 separate PDF’s via CCEL) 

On Prayer and On Baptism

Tertullian

On Baptism is not merely the earliest treatise on its subject but is the only Ante-Nicene treatise on any of the Sacraments and though its occasion was controversial it furnishes such exact information as we do not often have the good fortune to possess on such a subject. It is at the same time a treatise on Confirmation because in those days Baptism and Confirmation were regarded as two moments in a single action.
