What did new converts learn about the Faith in the early centuries of Christianity? * What is the true meaning of baptism and the Eucharist? * What do the words of the Lord's Prayer mean? * How were baptisms performed in the early Church? All these questions and more are answered in From Darkness to Light - not by any modern thinker's speculation, but by the early Fathers of the Church themselves, speaking through Anne Field's highly readable adaptation. Theologians and shepherds like John Chrysostom, Augustine, Ambrose, Cyril of Jerusalem, and Theodore of Mopsuestia speak to converts preparing for baptism on subjects such as commitment to Christ, the meaning of the Lord's Prayer and the Apostles' Creed, and what Scripture has to say about baptism and the Eucharist. This is in-depth, fundamental teaching which, unfortunately, many Christians today never receive From Darkness to Light is a uniquely valuable historical resource for the beliefs and practices of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church in its early centuries of existence. But it is also a priceless aid for any Christian who wishes to come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of his or her own baptism and faith.
