New Website : Read The Fathers
« 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 believe, help Thou my unbelief!! - St. John of Krondstadt

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.
Your idea has been debunked 1000 times already.. Maybe 1001 will be the charm

I whole heartedly support this, but why start in December? Wouldn't a further build up and then a January start make more sense?  :)
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft
