The Fathers of the Church: A Comprehensive Introduction
Hendrickson Publishers, 2007 - Religion - 632 pages
Huertus R. Drobner brings patristics scholarship up-to-date in this traditional introduction. His work is sufficiently broad to be a useful summary of early Christian history and the expansive strokes of doctrinal debate and development and provides a clear presentation of early Christian thought. Drobner introduces new materials throughout this recently updated edition of his handbook. A general map and several timetables add to the clarity of the volume.
