“the church fathers do not provide detailed codes and laws for answering the question of sufficiency and need. Instead, they spend much more time describing the kind of person who can possess and administer goods safely and wisely.”
Christopher A. Hall, Living Wisely with the Church Fathers

“What is most striking and troubling in the Enlightenment perspective, though, is its naive confidence that reason operates autonomously, largely free from the effects of personal disposition, social context, cultural background and religious community. Not only does postmodern philosophy and hermeneutics challenge this assertion, but classical Christianity doubts its fundamental viability.”
Christopher A. Hall, Reading Scripture With the Church Fathers

“Many conservative Protestant interpreters, though uncomfortable to find themselves slumbering with Enlightenment and postmodernist bedfellows, will fail to discern or acknowledge the necessity of studying the fathers.
