Two days ago we issued an urgent appeal for financial help to help us raise $15,000 (if you missed it, you can read it here LINK).We’d like to thank those of you who stepped forward to contribute more than $2,000 since then.And we’d appeal to those who have not yet given to please do so.We need those who can give one-time contributions, but even more we are looking for those who can pledge monthly to the work of evangelization.
A society characterized by loss of respect for life, violence, exotic religious cults, sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, and even pedophilia. Sound familiar? This was the world of the early Church Fathers. In this engrossing book, Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio brings out the colorful personalities of these dynamic Christian leaders and makes their rich teaching accessible, enjoyable, and relevant to the challenges we face every day.
The Fathers of the Church succeeded in bringing a pagan society to Christ. If we pay attention to what they taught, we will succeed in doing the same for our own increasingly de-Christianized society.
