Book Reading Goal : Week 2

2,000 Years of Christ's Power: Part One: The Age of the Early Church FathersI have recently began reading the four volume series on church history written by the excellent Nicholas R. Needham. I hold 3 volumes in my hand that is because the last one is not out yet, to my knowledge anyway. I have just completed volume one -  2000 Years of Christ's Power - Part One : The Age of The Early Church Fathers, released in 1998 covering the first 600 years or so. It is quite long (400 pages) but I enjoyed it thoroughly. The Needham volumes are not aimed at scholars but rather ordinary Christians who want to more about the history of the faith and get acquainted with some of Christendom's brilliant thinkers like Justin Martyr, Ambrose of Milan, the Cappadocian Fathers and of course Augustine. Very easy to read. As I read this book, I stood amazed at how little I knew! I am already now gripped with volume two, which I will report when I finish!
