Wonderful Words of Wisdom  May 18, 2001
This collection of quotes by the Church Fathers is thought provoking and inspiring. The quotes are arranged by subject, such as Eucharist, Persecution, Suffering, etc., making this book very easy to read. If you enjoy powerful concepts presented in a few short words, you'll love this book!
Start Here, Pilgrim  Nov 25, 2000
Arguably the best introduction ever to the prayers and quotes of the early Christians, "The Way of the Fathers" complements Mike Aquilina's earlier book, "The Fathers of the Church: Introduction to the First Christian Teachers."

The early Christians are the 'founding fathers' of the Church that lived from right after the apostolic age through the middle of the eighth century. About 50 ancient writers are quoted, among them are the Great Doctors of the Church: St. Gregory the Great, St. Ambrose of Milan, St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Jerome, St. John Chrysostom, St. Basil the Great, St. Gregory of Nazianzus, and St. Athanasius.

"The Way of the Fathers" is a compilation of 1,000 prayers, quotes, sayings, and poems. Most are one or two lines, and the longest is about 100 words. They are divided into about 50 chapters or themes, such as Creation, Human Nature, The Search, Prayer, Worship, Contemplation, Angels, Mary, and Glory.

What makes of The "Way of the Fathers" a unique treasure is that Mike Aquilina has edited the language into Modern English so that it is accessible to everyone.

Who should read it? Those who are starting their journey, those who want an introduction to the early Christians, and those who want an introduction to eastern Christian spirituality.
