The Epistles of Ignatius of Antioch (Book Review #14 of 2015)
The Epistles of Ignatius ( free text , free audio ) Why don't evangelical Christians study these historical texts more? There seems to be something taboo about quoting the early church fathers, yet nothing taboo about quoting 20th century sources, Puritans,...
