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.

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?  Smiley

I'll bet I look like a goof.
