The Church Fathers - Irenaeus of Lyons


Video from Post-Apostolic Church


IRENAEUS (C. AD 130–202) 1 of 5

"Some might express surprise at the choice of Irenaeus. He is best known for writing Against Heresies, a work that relentlessly dismantles early Gnosticism. Granted, the first two books of this lengthy work are often tedious because they recount and describe all the various gnostic myths and errors. Sadly, however, many readers have failed to reach books 3–5 because they gave up before getting to these sections of the works. James Payton has done every student of the early church a favor by editing a condensed version of Against Heresies under the title Irenaeus on the Christian Faith. This work allows readers to focus on books 3–5, where Irenaeus provides a positive exposition of Christian teaching." from TableTalk Magazine - Vacationing In Church History by Keith A. Matheson
