Christianity’s roots run deep with examples of strong faith from spiritual giants extending throughout history. Today’s church can be renewed by listening to the insights and wisdom of yesterday’s saints.
The CSB Ancient Faith Study Bible features study notes and commentary from the writings of the church fathers of the second, third, and fourth centuries to help you understand and apply their rich biblical insights to your life today. Also included are “Twisted Truth” call-outs describing where some ancient thinkers drifted from orthodoxy, more than twenty-five feature articles highlighting key selections from early church fathers on essential Christian truths, and biographies of twenty-five of the most influential patristic church fathers.
Includes commentary and writings from: Irenaeus of Lyons, Origen, Justin Martyr, Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria, Ambrose of Milan, Augustine of Hippo, Athanasius of Alexandria, John Chrysostom, Jerome, the Cappadocian Fathers, and more.
