Tell others about Jesus like these early Church Fathers did:
Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, Foreign Missionary, Prominent Evangelist, or 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). ____________

Why Protestants should read the early Church Fathers.
Written primarily for the evangelical, independent, and free church communities, who remain largely suspicious of church history and the relationship between Scripture and Tradition, D. H. Williams clearly explains why every branch of today's church owes its heritage to the doctrinal foundation laid by post-apostolic Christianity.
Both A Baptist Minister, and a Professor at a Catholic University.
Speaking both as a Protestant Pastor, and as a professor at a Roman Catholic university, D. H. Williams is well positioned to sympathetically and constructively build a bridge between the patristic heritage and those Protestant evangelicals who have discarded or marginalized this heritage.
Williams' important work clears the ground for this bridging to take place, demonstrating that the Christian use of Scripture and the church's Tradition are historically and theologically interrelated.
Based on solid historical and theological scholarship, this volume shows that embracing the "catholic" roots of the faith will not lead to the loss of Protestant distinctiveness but is essential for preserving the Christian vision in our rapidly changing world. ___________________________
