A Helpful Start

I mused a few days ago about my surprise that there are apparently no good, complete, current translations of the Church Fathers – the earliest writers and theologians after the Apostles.

It came to mind that once upon a time years ago I found online sites purporting to publish free, online, the 19th century translation of these Church Fathers’ writings.  A quick Google search led me to the Christian Classics Ethereal Library.  There, you can read Philip Schaff’s 1885 work, Ante-Nicene Fathers for free.  While I’d still prefer to have this in hard copy for note-taking purposes, it’s nice to know that I can begin reading these works for free online – and so can you!

    Hi Pastor Nelson,

    In case you aren’t aware of this site, it is also a good source for writings (although not free).

    You are remembering that I have these available for borrowing, yes?
