The Apostolic Fathers

Kyle Padden and Paul Maxwell join Jonathan Brack and Charles Williams to discuss the importance and value of reading the Apostolic Fathers. Particular attention is given to the letters of Ignatius of Antioch, the way he dealt with the question of the nature of the church’s authority, and the impact of martyrdom as it relates to the apostolic teaching.
