Tell others about Jesus:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, or a Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________

Many Christians Today Long to Become Reacquainted with their Ancient Ancestors in the Faith.

They see a deeper worship and devotion in the prayers and hymns of the early church.  And some are seeking help in reading Scripture from the early church fathers.

But how and where do we begin?  

Our first encounter of reading Scripture with the fathers may seem like visiting a far country and listening in on Bible study where the rules are different, the issues and conclusions not the same.

In Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers, Christopher Hall introduces us to the fathers, their world, and the sights and sounds they perceive in the Bible.  

As Hall points out, the fathers hear music in Scripture where we remain tone-deaf.  

Despite the occasional eccentricities, theirs is a hearing refined through long listening to the music of Scripture in song, worship, teaching, meditation and oral reading.  

And like true masters they challenge and correct our modern assumptions as they invite us to tune our ears to hear the divine melodies.

Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers is an exceptional guide.  

It is a warm, winsome, informative and indispensable introduction to who the fathers were, how they read and interpreted Scripture, and how we might read Scripture with them for all its worth. ____________________________
