As we dove into the roots of Christian history and Theology I feel it would be helpful to site some of the sources used. These are all titles I’ve read, or listened to, during the past few months. Feel free to study to your hearts content. They are all fantastic pieces of work with extraordinary views. Happy hunting.

Forgive me for sharing mostly audiobooks. I am an auditory learner who tends to memorize what I hear.
Some of these are collections of lectures by scholars whereas others are actual texts. I wouldn’t be surprised if several of the lectures were the results of books written by the scholars respectively. Others are written by regular people who have studied the scriptures and their origins en masse. Either way, it’s a good starting point for deepening our understanding of the early church.
