Publisher's Summary

In this book, Justin Martyr boldly defends the Christian faith before the Roman government. He addresses the core beliefs of the early church and refutes the lies spread abroad about them.
A truly inspirational piece of literature that should not disappoint the hungry soul looking for pure doctrine and teaching. He truly was a man of God that held great understanding of godly virtue and wisdom.
May you be abundantly blessed as you partake in this book!

Fascinating

Listening to the words of Justin Martyr who lived in a time so close to Christ and the Apostles greatly reinforced Scripture and illuminated the anti-Christian struggles of the day. I couldn't help but make some comparisons to the culture of our day.

A bit like listening to a defense by Apostle Paul

According to Justin, the Greeks were persecuting Christians on the grounds of false testimony. He defines who true Christians are by their virtues, as recognized by their keeping of the teachings of Christ, which Justin shared, so the governing authorities could see the benefit of Christians to their society. Justin argued that many of the characteristics attributed to Greek gods to be taken from Hebrew origin from Moses. He explains certain doctrines, like the Trinity, freedom of choice, judgement, conversion, washing, communion (Eucharist). This provided a great defense of the value of Christian lives to the Greeks, as well as the logic of Christian beliefs.

Mistakes are made

The early Church writers are interesting, if for nothing else than illustrating how speculation (that leaven of the Pharisees) starts quickly, and always in the struggle to justify one's position. Still any will value from appreciating the struggle intelligent minds have as they wrestle with the practicalities of their position. Thus was theology born. However the narrator might have benefited from reading the text a few times, as he makes some slips, most inconsequential, but at one point he reads begotten God instead of unbegotten which for any who are only listening to the audio is a serious error, otherwise well read.
