Another free e-book in Kindle format: “The Early Church: From Ignatius to Augustine” by George Hodges
Today I came across another free e-book in Kindle format: The Early Church: From Ignatius to Augustine by George Hodges. (I must note that I do not know how long it will be free. But even the paperback price of $4.99 is not bad.) This book is described on the Amazon page as “An engaging introduction to the history of the early church from its emergence in the Mediterranean world dominated by Rome until the fall of Rome in the age of Augustine. Relates the story of Christianity’s struggle for life during the early days of persecution; the defence of the faith against prejudice, heresy, and rivalry; the Arian debate; the rise of monasticism in the east and in the west; and the influence of Ambrose, Chrysostom, and Augustine.”
George Hodges was actually an Episcopal clergyman and theologian who became the dean of the Episcopal Theological School at Cambridge, Massachusetts prior to his death in 1919. If you are interested in the history of the early church, you might give The Early Church: From Ignatius to Augustine a try.
