The Early Church: One Faith Handed Down in Truth
How did the Church begin and spread? Why is it important to learn about early Christianity? Who were the successors of the apostles and other leaders of the early Church? Were the doctrines and sacraments of the early Church different from those of the Catholic Church today? As Catholics we can’t truly know who we are without knowing where we came from—those earliest Christians who, succeeding Jesus and the apostles, codified and built upon the teachings they inherited. The Early Church: One Faith Handed Down in Truth reveals the legacy of our forefathers in the Faith, showing how they lived and what they believed. And perhaps most importantly, how the Church they governed, guarded, and preached was the same Church that Jesus founded and the same Church that we have inherited almost two millennia later.
