The Very First Fathers: Faith and Wisdom From the Dawn of the Christian Age
The apostles preached and preserved the Faith they received from Jesus.
This is the story of what happened next.
In The Very First Fathers, Jimmy Akin (author of the best-selling book The Fathers Know Best) takes you on a tour of the earliest Christian writings outside the New Testament. From the most famous figures and most notable works to those lesser-known but no less important, this pivotal time in the development of the early Church is revealed in fascinating detail.
Jimmy shows how, even in the first century after the Resurrection, it was necessary to defend and explain truths that are still under attack today, such as the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist and the perpetual virginity of Mary. The Very First Fathers is thus not only a compelling look at the dawn of the Christian age—it’s edifying listening for anyone who wants to understand and defend the full truth of Catholicism.

Have already listened to the presentation, twice. So much to learn, Thank you, Jimmy Akin
Oh, my gosh. The Church Fathers wrote and taught the same orthodoxy the Church teaches today. Thank you Jimmy for making ancient writings that seemed inaccessible and unfathomable to me, easy, easy, easy and interesting. God bless everyone at Catholic Answers, especially today, Jimmy for this great introduction to the Fathers of Christ's Church.
I'm so grateful that I have finally found what I've been searching for my whole life. All this knowledge is amazing. Thank you.
