Wisdom for Today from the Early Church provides an eye-opening introduction into the theological and spiritual riches of the early Church. Arranged thematically, covering topics such as monasticism, the Gnostics, and the rise of papal supremacy.
This ten-chapter journey is by no means a dry read. Dr. Ford is well known for his passionate teaching of Church History. For 25 years at St. Tikhon’s Seminary, he has instructed hundreds of students, who are now lay leaders, deacons, priests, bishops, and a metropolitan of the Church; he has served as the Chair of the Department of Church History and Patristics; and he has been promoted to the rank of full Professor. His commitment to the school and to his course of study flows from his great love for Christ and His Church – and her two millennia-old story.
If you were to speak with any of his students, you would find that they all agree on his incredible devotion to teaching, his unwavering faithfulness to the Church and her Tradition, his respect for her Scriptures, his obedience to her teachings, and his veneration of her Saints. He literally re-lives the moments that he is teaching, with all their drama, joys, and sorrows. He makes the pages of Church History come alive in his classroom – and it is no different in this book.
His Grace, Bishop MICHAEL (Dahulich), Bishop of the Diocese of New York and New Jersey (OCA)
