The writings of the great Church Fathers St. Hippolytus of Rome and St. Cyprian of Carthage was well as of Caius and the heretic Novatian were fascinating throughout, of course.

Wisdom and discernment of a father, earnest affection and zealous encouragement of a brother. Those will definitely be read several more times over the coming decades. I appreciated the organization, too, which put all the works surrounding the Novatian controversy/heresy/schism in the same volume. ...more
