Title: New Website : Read The Fathers
Post by: simplygermain on December 16, 2012, 09:46:46 PM
A friend studying at George Fox University passed along a wonderful new web addy to me...

readthefathers.org 

7 pages a day over 7 years to read the large library of translated texts

I intend to start this on the New Year.

Great find! Thank you!

Started today and was amazed at how edifying Pseudo-Ignatius' Epistle to Hero was.

I also have been going through the Great Books for about a year over at http://throughthegreatbooks.wordpress.com/

I have been hoping to find a similar 7-year project for the Church Fathers set on my shelves and here it is.

Doesn't leave much time for YouTube, though.

I just signed up and purchased the Kindle version of the book. I will read it tonight.

In 2014 you're still reading Origen with this schedule...

I whole heartedly support this, but why start in December? Wouldn't a further build up and then a January start make more sense?  :)
