The Fathers of The Church Series is a truly exciting new collection in Logos. The biggest collection of patristic documents ever gathered in English translation—and still growing!—this series represents the absolute best in early church history.
It’s difficult to put into words just how valuable this series really is. Maybe it’s the history buff in me, but it’s hard to deny that nearly 50,000 pages of patristic primary-source material ranging from the first to the fifth centuries isn’t something exciting. It’s even harder to deny that, in Logos, this collection is arguably the most powerful patristic study tool available to students and scholars anywhere.
Brilliant scholarship at an incredible price
What makes this collection so valuable isn’t just the sheer immensity of text (at less $.04 per page, the absolute best value anywhere): it’s the brilliant scholarship and translation that this series is renowned for in the English-speaking world. The English translations of both Greek and Latin texts are clear and easy to read, and the scholarship behind them is unparalleled both in scope and in scale.
While there’s some overlap with the Early Church Fathers collection, most of these works are brand-new to Logos, and all of them offer new and improved translations. Plus, this edition includes many of the commentaries the early Church Fathers wrote on books of the Bible, most of which are omitted in the Schaff edition. [Read more...]
