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)

On Patience

Tertullian

IN CONTRAST TO the impassioned rhetoric which stamps so distinctively the bulk of Tertullian’s writings the homily on Patience presents an urgent but gentle exhortation to the practice of this truly Christian virtue. “I confess,” he begins, “to the Lord my God that I certainly have courage not to say presumption to have dared to write on patience a virtue which I am utterly unfit to practice being as I am a man of no account.” Such a disarming admission followed by a humble acknowledgment of the need of divine assistance in order to attain to patience together with the relatively mild and pleasing tone of the entire treatise sets it apart as rather rare in the work of the great controversialist.
