Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
A lot of Protestant and Baptist seminaries have included dense studies of the Fathers, and many preachers are at least remotely familiar with some of the big names. The theological backflip from these kinds of folks is that they are Cathars/Puritans, they denounce the Church not because they also denounce the Fathers, but because if they accept the Fathers they accuse the Church of going against the Fathers. It is absurd, true, but they are very suspicious of any extra-Scriptural writings as being God-inspired. In other words, they think the Fathers are nice writers with interesting things to preach, but they do not hold the Fathers to be authoritative, even if they study them deeply.
