Thursday Book Review – Ignatius

A couple weeks ago we returned to the Patristic Fathers with a review of Polycarps writings. Both Polycarp and Ignatius of Antioch (35-108) were disciples by the Apostle John. Through the original letters written we can see that Polycarp and Ignatius were friends.

When we consider that the earliest copy of Plato’s Tetralogies is over a thousand years past his life, it’s amazing to me that we have such a treasure trove of the early church writers. This is our history, brethren, and it’s a wonderful thing to have! The Epistle of Ignatius is a short, fantastic book for any believer who wants to look more into the early church. It’s in the public domain, so it’s available in a Kindle version, audio version, pdf version, and of course the good old fashion paper back.

I pray you’ll be blessed by this book, dear friends, as I was. And as always beloved brethren be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

    1. That is an excellent recourse! Thank you for adding the link, there’s so much in that article. It is important, like you said, to consider the context. The kind of dishonesty it takes to pull random sentences out of these letters and use them to prove a point should be alarming to everyone.
      Brother, I have absolutely loved learning this history! It’s needful, perhaps from generation to generation, for us to reclaim these truths from those who would distort them. Grace and peace to you!
