The Apostasy That Wasn't:
The Extraordinary Story of the Unbreakable Early Church
By: Rod Bennett
This is one of my favorite books on the Church Fathers because it
explains the context of how they are important.

about this new book.
Description: The narrative of the so-called
“Great Apostasy” goes like this: just a few centuries after
Christ’s death, around the time the Roman Empire converted to
Christianity, the true Faith suffered a catastrophic
falling-away. The simple truths of the gospel became so obscured
by worldliness and pagan idolatry that Christianity required a
complete reboot. This idea of a Great Apostasy is one of the
cornerstones of American Protestantism, along with Mormonism,
the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and even Islam. Countless millions
today profess a faith built on the assumption that the early
Church quickly became broken beyond repair, requiring some new
prophet or reformer to restore the pure teaching of Jesus and
the apostles. This theory is popular... but its also fiction.
Rod Bennett is here with the truth.
