What I'm reading this month

What I'm reading this well as the end of last month.


The Apostolic Fathers: Greek Texts and English Translations (Hardcover) by Dr. Michael W. Holmes

The greek text is on oneside, while the english on the other. the scripture references are at the bottom of the English side of the page. For those that don't know what the term "Apostolic Fathers" mean. It just means those christians or christian works from 70 A.D. to about 150 A.D.

It's anotherway of saying "Those christians that lived closest to the Apostles".

I'm also reading

Christianity's Dangerous Idea: The Protestant Revolution--A History from the Sixteenth Century to the Twenty-First (Hardcover) by Dr. Alister Mcgrath

This book is really insightful. It's mainly about Protestant Biblical interpretation from the 15 hundreds to the 21 century.


Credo: Historical and Theological Guide to Creeds and Confessions of Faith in the Christian Tradition (Paperback) by Dr. Jaroslav Pelikan

This book really didn't have what I was looking for. It was pretty much basic stuff. The basics.....not too deep....into depth. So I'm gonna have to find another source.....eventually.

From the Bible:

I'm just looking at certain verses as of now.

I'm looking at the verses the Apostolic Fathers quoted from the Bible. Dr. Michael W. Holmes made it easy to trace some of the verses they quoted or referenced.

I'm trying to see how they understood certain scriptural passages.

Also in regards to Dr. Alister Mcgrath's book, he traces various interpretations that different Protestants had of various passages. He also shows how some old interpretations got dumped for news ones........even by the same denominational group. It's a very interesting and enlightening book. He starts in the 15 hundreds and ends in the 21 first century.

So I'm basically looking at scriptural interpretation. I need some of this info for a project I'm doing.
