"Remember the Days of Old: Orthodox Thinking on the Patristic Heritage
The faith of the orthodox Christian is “apostolic,” in that it is continuous with the faith of the first century apostles. But to be truly apostolic it must be sent into the world, speaking to each new age. In this fresh and innovative work, Augustine Casiday shows us what it means to re-appropriate the wisdom of the Fathers and to give their words new life in a new age.

Beginning with the basic inquiry of what it means to accord the ancient writers’ authority—as it were affiliating them, or adopting them as fathers—the reader is invited to join on a journey to many new places, as well as to ones we thought we knew, but didn’t really. This book will inform anyone who wants to grapple with how we treat the past and its authoritative voices. Beginners will encounter a first-rate thinker writing comprehensibly and accessibly. Advanced patristic scholars will be guaranteed to come away from this book with new insights and challenging arguments.

Dr Augustine Casiday has authored, translated, and edited (or co-edited) over a dozen books, including Reconstructing the Theology of Evagrius Ponticus and The Orthodox Christian World. He is a specialist in Greek and Latin patristic theology, with particular interests in religious controversy and in the modern reception of ancient texts and practices.

Dr Peter C. Bouteneff, Foundations Series Editor

Testifying to the faith and creativity of the Orthodox Christian Church, the Foundations series draws upon the riches of its tradition to address the modern world. These survey texts are suitable both for preliminary inquiry and deeper investigation, in the classroom and for personal study."
