    1. Awesome Complete Korean Edition. A very useful book.
      1. This is a solid book that surveys the Church Fathers (and a few Mothers too) from the very early days – shortly after the New Testament documents were written (first century) to the eighth century. It spans St. Clement of Rome, who was probably a disciple of St. Peter, to St. John of Damascus, who was part of the refutation of the iconoclastic heresies in the eighth century. There are fifty-four different Church Fathers represented, and what is particularly excellent is the background information. Where the Acts of the Apostles leaves off, the Church Fathers pick up to provide the history, theology, and apologetics of Christian thinking. Aquilina states: “As heirs to the Apostles, the leaders and teachers of the early Church – the Fathers of the Church – were intensely concerned with preserving the unity and integrity of the “company of those who believed,” even as that company grew from a small band of several hundred to encompass millions of people speaking dozens of languages and dispersed throughout the Roman Empire.”
