lent 2018: The Temptations of Jesus

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 13th February 2018 in lent | lent,series,Temptation,Sacrifice,passover lamb,paschal lamb
lent is just around the corner, and so this year I've decided to write a short series over the next 40 days looking at the forty days that Jesus spent in the wilderness, and the temptations he faced. I'll post a new blog each Sunday of lent looking at each temptation, and then finish the series just before Easter Sunday looking at “how was Jesus a sacrifice?”. Series outline: Temptation one: Pride (1st Sunday of lent, February 18, 2018) Temptation two: Worship and Glory (2nd Sunday of lent, February 25, 2018) Temptation three: Testing God (3rd Sunday of lent, March 4, 2018) Temptation four: Complacency (4th Sunday of lent, March 11, 2018) Topical: W...

Day Twenty-six: St. Athanasius: Life of Anthony: Chaps. 51-60 Who: Bishop of Alexandria; Confessor and Doctor of the Church; born c. 296; died 2 May, 373 AD. He was the main defender of orthodoxy in the 4th-century battle against the Arianism heresy. Certain writers received the title “Doctor” on account of the great advantage their doctrine had on the whole Church, Athanasius especially for his doctrine on the incarnation. What: The biography of Anthony the great’s life, which helped to spread the concept of Christian monasticism, particularly in Western Europe. Why: From the letter’s own prologue: “The life and conversation of our holy Father,...

40 Days with the Fathers: Source Texts Companion Book

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 2nd March 2019 in My Books | church fathers,church history,early church,early church fathers,companion book,40 days,lent
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. So if you have my book and would like to read along each day with the Church Fathers as well, I’ve compiled a list of online sources where you can read the original texts. 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...
