That's what Mike Aquilina shows you in this book. The Fathers managed to pull off an amazing achievement. They converted the pagan world in a mere two and a half centuries. They did it without any resources, without any social or political power. They did it with the most primitive communications media. Yet their Church sustained a steady growth rate of 40 percent per decade over the course of those centuries. Maybe there's something we can learn from them. This book is a journey into that world, a tour where your guides are the Fathers.

Places the Fathers in Context
This is a shorter book that is a more historical description of early Christians and the challenges they faced as opposed to early church theology. I found it complimentary to "When the Church Was Young".
You will not learn a great deal on any church father, but what you know about the early church fathers will be enriched by understanding them in a deeper historical context.
