Justin Taylor has posted an interview with Dr. Michael Haykin offering advise on reading the church fathers. This affords a good opportunity to mention that Dr. Haykin has a new book on Rediscovering the Church Fathers, due to be released by Crossway on March 31, 2011. Dr. Haykin described the purpose of the book in his interview with Justin as:
The book seeks to stimulate a thirst for the Fathers and to reveal how rich the Fathers are in theology and piety. As such, it is not an exhaustive study of the Fathers. Rather, it presents six Fathers/patristic texts that reveal key themes of that era of church history and hopefully stir up interest and make the Fathers increasingly a known land.
