When the Church Was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers
And if the Bible can be interpreted in many ways, how do we know what to make
of it? And who decided what should be in the Bible anyway?
The Church Fathers provide the answers. These brilliant, embattled, and
sometimes eccentric men defined the biblical canon, hammered out the Creed,
and gave us our understanding of sacraments and salvation. It is they who
preserved for us the rich legacy of the early Church.

“To be rooted in history is to cease being Protestant."
For those who want to know more about the early church this is a great book. It is not an in depth study of each saint, but a compelling overview of their struggles and contributions of our faith tradition today. It is an easy read.
Presented it to a newly ordained priest
This book presents the world of the Early Church Fathers to us in a way that makes them accessible and real. The writing style balances the history and theology of the Early Church Fathers so that the reader can grasp the important contribution they made to the Church without getting bogged down in difficult theological terminology and technicality. I have added it to the reading list of my Patrology course.
