Item Description...
Overview
So many concerns of today's world require nuanced consideration and a sensitive response. Yet human nature and spiritual need remain remarkably constant. Practical, moral, and spiritual struggles are not peculiar to modern life.

Early Christians looked at all things through the lens of God and Christ, including those that today we would consider secular in nature, as the wide range of subjects these writers addressed clearly demonstrates. The words of Christian writers such as Tertullian, Jerome, John Chrysostom, Basil of Caesarea, and Clement of Alexandria are organized around familiar, everyday themes. In study, reflection, or devotional reading, use this book to look through their eyes at our issues and, perhaps, find a deepened and sharpened awareness of what it means to choose the Christian life.

Introduced, organized, and translated by Everett Ferguson, these quotes are arranged to allow the ancient authors to speak for themselves. Inheriting Wisdom will refresh modern readers with the rich resources of early Christianity and provide direction and guidance for the twenty-first century.

Everett Ferguson is the Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Abilene Christian University. He has authored numerous texts including Early Christians Speak and Backgrounds of Early Christianity and lectures on patristics throughout the world.

Publishers Description
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." So many contemporary issues require nuanced consideration and a sensitive response--yet human nature and spiritual need remain remarkably constant. Practical, moral, and spiritual struggles are not peculiar to modern life. Early Christian writers looked at all things through the lens of God and Christ, and Inheriting Wisdom allows us to see through their eyes and gain a sharper perspective on the concerns of the twenty-first century. Introduced, arranged, and translated by Everett Ferguson, these pragmatic quotes allow the ancient authors to speak for themselves. Organized around practical themes, the words of Tertullian, Jerome, John Chrysostom, Basil of Caesarea, Clement of Alexandria, and others offer rich fare for study or devotional reading--and provide refreshing guidance through today's real-world concerns.
