This is awesome. I've only read the first two chapters and it's like a guide to life for all who love The Lord. I'm going to read if twice more later tonight and make notes. Two chapters each day! Thank you StoveBolts

Clement is on of my favorite Apostolic Fathers, and I hope to have a collection of all of them during Christmas break and I'll be able to break their writings into chapters.
There is a chapter component in Wordpress that enables you to create a book and add chapters but I haven't had time to learn it, and I already posted this.

It would be nice for you to create a blog entry and put it in the Early Church catagory.

Pope?

Over what?
From what I understand through Orthodoxy, and I am a bit foggy, so please dont quote me... but in the early church, there were many Popes as there are today. (The Orthodox have their Popes). The word did not conjure the primacy of Rome as it has for the past thousand years.

I've only just recently heard of him..i know more about Antipas..
Yes, but the thread is about Clement of Rome and what he wrote to the church in Corinth.
What is your favorite quote? If you havent read it, I would highly recomend it. It's one of my favorites among the Apostolic Fathers.
