3 Days Left: Get $670 Off the Fathers of the Church Series

Fathers of the Church SeriesIn just three short days, we’re shipping a massive collection of influential texts from the early church. Through June 19, you can pre-order the 127-volume Fathers of the Church Series for $670 off! 

The Fathers of the Church Series gives you the primary texts you need to become an expert on early Christian thought, understand the history behind modern theology, and appreciate Christianity’s impact on history. After it ships, though, the price will never be this low again.

A rare look into 5 centuries of church history

The series covers a vast swath of Christian history: it includes works from both the Ante-Nicene and the Post-Nicene eras, from both the Greek and the Latin Fathers of the Nicene era, and especially from Augustine of Hippo. You’ll get an unparalleled look at Tertullian’s foundations for Latin apologetics and Christianity, Chrysostom’s homilies, Jerome’s profoundly influential Commentary on Matthew, and much more.

Studying these texts in Logos 5 equips you to get more from your research. You won’t read in a vacuum; instead, you’ll explore these documents alongside the best Bible dictionaries, maps, and timelines, so you can fully immerse yourself in ancient culture. Links to other patristic writings bring you straight to the source—not just to the right book, but to the right page—giving you instant context. Footnotes appear on mouseover, as well as references to Scripture and extrabiblical material in your library, and you can perform near-instant searches across all these volumes.

Learn from some of Christianity’s most important texts

AugustineThe Fathers of the Church Series includes some of the most compelling, revolutionary thought in Christian history. Here are a few of the “firsts” included here:

  • Justin Martyr’s First and Second Apologies represent some of the first Christian philosophical writings, including the first philosophical exposition of the logos and one of the first attempts to reconcile faith and reason.
  • Origen’s Commentary on the Gospel according to John, Books 13–32 is widely thought to mark the beginning of Christian scriptural exegesis. This version offers the first full English translation.
  • Augustine of Hippo’s most influential work, the Confessions, is arguably the first Western autobiography. City of God also offers one of history’s most profound treatises on Christianity and government.

The Fathers of the Church Series offers brilliant scholarship and an unparalleled look at historical, literary, and theological advances in Christian history.

Who was J. Gresham Machen?

John Gresham Machen (July 28, 1881–January 1, 1937) was a professor of New Testament at Princeton Seminary from 1915 to 1929. After arguing against the emerging modernist theology at Princeton, Machen became one of the principal founders of Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where he taught until his death. Machen is considered the last of the great Princeton Theologians (after Archibald Alexander, Charles Hodge, A.A. Hodge, and B.B. Warfield), and his works reflect their tradition of conservative Calvinist orthodoxy.

Machen’s influence can be felt today through the existence of the institutions he founded—Westminster Theological Seminary and the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. In addition, his textbook on basic New Testament Greek is still used in many seminaries, including schools in the Presbyterian Church USA.
