THE EARLY CHURCH FATHERS: ANTE-NICENE FATHERS (10 VOLUMES) EDITED BY ALEXANDER ROBERTS, JAMES DONALDSON, PHILIP SCHAFF, AND HENRY WACE DESCRIPTIONREVIEWSTHE ANTE-NICENE FA
The Ante-Nicene Fathers ranges from the Apostolic Fathers to various third and fourth century sources including the liturgies and ancient Syriac documents. It was intended to comprise translations into English of all the extant works of the Fathers (with the exception of the more bulky works of Origen) down to the date of the first General Council held at Nicaea in 325 A.D. This American edition by Arthur Cleveland Coxe is a revision of the original series edited by Alexander Roberts and Sir James Donaldson and published in Edinburgh. The revision involves a major rearrangement to conform to the historical sequence, the addition of brief introductions and notes indicating variances in readings, specifying references to scripture or literature, clarifying obscure passages, and noting corruptions or distortions of patristic testimony (as forged in the Decretals). The basic aim of the translations has been to strive for literary exactness, placing the English reader as nearly as possible on an equal footing with those who are able to read the original.

Metropolitan Emilianos Timiadis, inspired by a statement of St. Gregory the Wonder-worker (213-270), rightly views the purpose of the service rendered by the Church Fathers to humanity in the following words: to communicate the saving truths of the Christian faith, to make them accessible and understandable in order that people may come nearer to God. This, the Metropolitan believes, implies a mutual sharing of the Holy Spirit by the believers and clergy, as well as the speaker and the listener. He moreover, see the Church Fathers as pastors of souls, guides, interpreters, and messengers of God`s will, and therefore necessary spiritual guides for all people.

The quest for a harmonious relationship between humanity and the environment quickens as ecological problems escalate in our modern world. Irresponsible use of the environment has caused pollution, diminished natural resources, accumulation of radioactive waster, disease, famine, and abnormal climatic conditions. In response to the myriad solutions offered by the scientific community, Anestis G. Keselopoulos proposes another dimension, a theological solution put forth ten centuries ago by the Byzantine mystic St Symeon the New Theologian.
