At his Letter of Marque blog, apologist Chris Rosebrough reminds us of the importance of reading the works of the ancient Christians. Introducing Clement of Rome’s first epistle to the Corinthians, Rosebrough writes:
Biblical literacy and literacy in regard to the writings of the ancient church provide the Christian disciple with an almost impregnable defense against the mythological ravings of liberal apostates and Emergent heretics….
Case and point is this amazing epistle written by Clement of Rome. It was written no later than 95. AD. and it demolishes the arguments of liberals and progressives who insist that the Gospels were not written until late in the 1st century or until the early to mid 2nd century.
