 Our Description

Meet the heroines of Christianity's formative years!

Mike Aquilina and Christopher Bailey, in a follow-up to the best-selling The Fathers of the Church, have penned an inspiring companion volume on the Mothers of the Church that, like no other book, explores their impact on history and the Faith.

Mothers of the Church: The Witness of Early Christian Women will reinforce Catholics understanding of the part played by women in the early Church. Drawing upon a wide spectrum of sources, it illustrates the many kinds of women that left their mark on sacred history by responding to God's call. Whether they were martyrs, abbesses, mothers, desert solitaries, or managers of large family businesses, these women's stories will encourage you and deepen your faith.

Each chapter features a concise biography that is supplemented by quotes from the Fathers writings concerning the woman in question, poetry concerning her, and other ancient testimonials.

The authors authoritative yet accessible writing style deftly explores the important impact of early Christian women.

Holy Women of the New Testament
--St. Blandina
--St. Perpetua and St. Felicity
--St. Helena
--St. Thecla
--St. Agnes of Rome
--St. Macrina

Review Provided By TiberRiver.com - THE Catholic Book Review Site

This item received 4 stars overall. Good book, but I look forward to a possible revision

Mothers of the Church was given to me by Our Sunday Visitor in exchange for an honest review. It was written by Mike Aquilina and Christopher Bailey and is the follow-up book to Mike Aquilina's bestseller The Fathers of the Church. I for one am pleased it was written. Women have played and continue to play a large role in the Church, and it's nice to see some of them highlighted in their own book.
