Who were the Church Fathers? What did they achieve? And why are their lives and writings considered so important?

D’Ambrosio dusts off the dry theology and brings you the exciting stories about great thinkers such as Ambrose, Augustine, Basil, Athanasius, Chrysostom, and Jerome. This page-turner will inspire and challenge you with surprising insights into the brilliant, embattled, and sometimes eccentric men who defined the biblical canon, hammered out the Creed, and gave us our understanding of sacraments and salvation.

Press Reviews

Dr D’Ambrosio has accomplished the rare feat of combining scholarship with readability. Christians of all traditions can trace their faith to these pioneers; their story is our story.

- Professor David Alton, House of Lords

Who Were the Church Fathers? is everything you could want it to be: easy to read, clear, full of vitality, thorough and honest. (...) Dr D Ambrosio's book is an excellent introduction to the Church Fathers, designed to whet the appetite, and succeeding in that aim. The book has a good bibliography of both primary and secondary sources to encourage readers in pursuing issues further, and is eminently accessible to the non-specialist reader.
