Product Overview

By Andrew Stephen Damick

St. Ignatius, first-century Bishop of Antioch, called the “God-bearer,” is one of the earliest witnesses to the truth of Christ and the nature of the Christian life. Tradition tells us that as a small child, Ignatius was singled out by Jesus Himself as an example of the childlike faith all Christians must possess (see Matthew 18:1–4). In Bearing God, Fr. Andrew Damick recounts the life of this great pastor, martyr, and saint, and interprets for the modern reader five major themes in the pastoral letters he wrote: martyrdom, salvation in Christ, the bishop, the unity of the Church, and the Eucharist.

    First two chapters out of five are good

    Posted by William Tu on Apr 12th 2020

    The first two chapters were very instructional for the average church member. They taught much about spirituality. I took pages of notes from the first two chapters. The other three chapters would be more interesting to priests, but not to laity, as their titles were "Bishop", "Church unity" and "Eucharist". I could only find a little note for these 3 chapters. Because this book is blessed by a saint (Saint Ignatius of Antioch), and because the first two chapters are very instructive, you should still buy this book just to read the first two chapters.

    New to the Orthodox Faith, I found this finely crafted work inspiring as well as informative. May it be blessed!
