Series Information
Evangelical Ressourcement: Ancient Sources for the Church's Future


Description: Tradition, Scripture, and Interpretation supplements a valuable series that helps modern church leaders return to the wisdom and insight of the early church fathers in order to apply their ancient understandings of Christian belief and practice to ministry in the twenty-first century. This sourcebook gathers key writings from the first through sixth centuries on various topics of concern to the church yesterday and today. The writings are arranged thematically, and within each theme, chronologically, revealing how the Christian tradition on a given topic developed over time. The anthology begins with a chapter examining the close relationship between Scripture and tradition in the minds of early church leaders.

Subjects: Early Christian Literature, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Early Church Origins
