Perhaps no institution has influenced human history more than the Christian church. Its swaying and staying power over 2,000 years is due in no small part to the philosophical accomplishments of a core of early Church Fathers. Studying the Early Church Fathers then, is vitally important not just for Christians, but for anyone who wants to understand the scope and pattern of human history.
