Lent: Intro - 40 Day Reading Plan with the Fathers

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 1st March 2017 in Lent | Lent,great lent,faSting,early church fathers,devotional,daily reading
This year for Lent I'm following a reading plan which comprises of a collection of extracts from various early church fathers writings. Each day I'm going to write a short overview and any thoughts on the text and link back to the source material so you can also follow along with me too, if you'd like. The overview of each day will probably be poSted on the day after. The reading should only take 10-15 minutes of your time, and by day 40, you will have read ten different Fathers: Didache, Diognetus, Polycarp, Ignatius, JuStin Martyr, Cyprian, Athanasius, Cyril of Jerusalem, Ambrose of Milan, and Leo the Great. I'll be reading from the “Church Fathers Lenten...

Available soon will be a companion book that will include all of the source texts in full, which I had hoped to get out in time for Lent, but it’s unlikely to be ready in time this year.

If you don’t have the book and would like it, you can order it now from Amazon and Still get it in time for Lent by clicking the following link: Amazon.com; or if you would like to pledge some support towards my book writing in return for some nice perks, you can do so on my Patreon page: https://patreo...
 

American Gun Violence and the Early Church on War and Violence

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 3rd October 2017 in Early Church | early church,early church fathers,gun violence,America,mass shooting
In light of the sad, recent events in the Las Vegas shooting — and similar events in America— I often see ChriStians across social media jumping to the defence of gun ownership whenever there is even a slight hint at gun control in America. But how has gun culture become so ingrained in American ChriStianity when we can observe a clear theme and pattern of thought in the firSt few centuries of the Church, which goes completely againSt this? Update 7th Nov 2017: It's so sad to have to update this poSt on the same subject so soon, almoSt a month to the day. Yet another shooting, this time in Texas where 26 people have been shot dead in a church of all pl...
