    Great Resource

    As always, Mr. Akin delivers with this work. This book is a great resource to read and have on hand. If you have ever wondered what the early Church fathers wrote about a significant theological topic, or you are curious about the history of the councils, for instance, this is the book for you. This is a great companion to his other book, The Bible is a Catholic Book
