Verbum Sales Associate Preston Morrison talks about his favorite Verbum resource, the Fathers of the Church Series from Catholic University of America in 127 volumes—now with extra savings through the end of the month!
I love Fathers of the Church because I can actually see what the Church Fathers taught and thought. From a scholarly perspective, I can read the Christian writers who came immediately after Christ. I grew up in a different faith tradition, and I didn’t even know the Church Fathers existed until recently!
The sheer size of the series is most impressive: 46,317 pages of text in 127 volumes. Also, the translations from the original languages are fairly recent, with introductions and notes for each author.
Fathers of the Church Series is at the top of my list because I haven’t found any other resource that compares to the quality of translations, number of authors, and comprehensive coverage of Christian writings for the first 500 years of Christianity.
I find that this series is popular with customers across denominations, and they love it! Once you realize how much content you’re getting, it’s practically a must-own resource.
