Today as two thousand years ago we fight anger, pride, lust, spiritual sloth. Now as then we strive to be more diligent in prayer, more faithful to the commandments, more patient and charitable toward others. And in our time, no less than in t ...more

It was worth the entire price of the book to have discovered this gem on Day 24, entitled, “Don't Make Excuses” from St. Augustine's City of God:
‘But it is a worse and more damnable pride which casts about for the shelter of an excuse even in manifest sins, as these our first parents did, of whom the woman said, “The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat,” and the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.” (Genesis 3:12-13)

Daily reading.

I always know that anything Mike Aquilina writes is going to have solid worth behind it. When it is a book that has anything to do with the Church Fathers then I know it will be solid gold. Aquilina's passion for the wisdom of the Fathers always is passed on to readers in such a way that they appreciate the Fathers for themselves, which is no easy feat when one considers how long ago they wrote.

This book is very good read, for those who would like to embody the ideas of the Early Church. The Book is organized perfectly. However, in my case I was not always able to read this book consecutively so this book took more than a year to complete. Nonetheless, this book is a gem and I recommend it for anyone, especially those new to The Faith or who are not aware of the fuller expression of what being "a Christian" really means.

A great book to use as part of one's daily readings. Going back and reading the words of the Early Church Father really helps get one connected to the roots of the faith. It was also encouraging to see how stuff we wrestle with today were things they faced.

Outstanding selections from various early Fathers--great for reading and reflecting, each with a v. brief introduction and prayer. I commend this highly to someone looking for a good entree into the world of the early Church.
