Early Church Father Series

"Early Church Father Series: St. Ignatius of Antioch" by Greg Gordon

| Website | FacebookInstagram | Today in the Body of Christ— especially within evangelicalism and other modern expressions of the Church—there is an increasingly urgent need to reconnect with the foundational precepts of the “faith once for all delivered to the saints.” Ignatius writes while bound in Rome, “From Syria even to Rome I fight with wild beasts, by land and sea, by night and by day, being bound amidst ten leopards, even a company of soldiers, who only grow worse when they are kindly treated.” As the cover of this book shows Ignatius being devoured by two wild beasts, this was his fate and faithful martyrdom. So here we are 2000 years later and able to sit down with St. Ignatius, to hear his heart, his passion for Christ, and his love for the Church. Let us gleam a view of truth from his writings to see the Bible in a new light and be bolstered to continue on the faithful continuance of the “One Faith” given to the Church.

The House of the Frog

"The House of the Frog" by Robert Adams

Clayton’s biggest fear becomes his realty. He sees his culture fading like autumn leaves falling to the earth with no hope of rejuvenating itself like it does when spring arrives and everything starts its journey all over again. Elizabeth, Clayton’s daughter and mother of Jonathon and Richard, is married to Sakarja Skovdahl, who drinks a lot and frequently beats her. She eventually leaves him and moves in with her parents. Clayton takes on the father role for the boys by teaching them how to fish, speak Tlingit, and sing and dance. When Jonathon goes off to school, Clayton is proud because he knows an education will prove beneficial in addition to his time-honored teachings. Little does he know Jonathan will be punished for speaking the native tongue. When Jonathon returns for the summer to help his grandfather at fish camp, Clayton is surprised when Jonathan no longer has a desire to speak his own language. After explicit orders from his grandfather not to use the motors for fishing, Jonathon uses them anyway. Cedric Moore moves to Dry Bay looking for work. He fights inner demons that haunt him because of his war experiences. Despite his inner battles, Cedric does good deeds and he likes the Tlingit culture and people. After helping one of her sons, he forms a relationship with Elizabeth, who he passionately loves.
