Either way, it's easy to feel like we're missing something when it comes to understanding the early Church. But what if you discovered that there is a reliable way to know what the early Church was really like?
Contrary to popular belief, there is a wealth of documentation from the four early Christian witnesses - Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus of Lyons - that can give us a much clearer picture of Christianity in its earliest days.
In his book Four Witnesses: The Early Church in Her Own Words, Rod Bennett brings these fascinating testimonies to life for modern believers. Through the lives of these four great saints of the early Church, we are given an insightful look into the beautiful truths of Christianity that have been lost in time.
This is more than just a history book - it's a journey of discovery that will leave you feeling inspired and hopeful about the future of our faith.
