A number of people have written to us to say that they are planning to read the church fathers. We’ve asked a few of them to write a brief (or not so brief) blog post explaining why they plan to join the reading group. We assume the reasons are as varied as readers.

If you would like to explain why you plan to read, please send us a note and we’ll be glad to consider your post. The post can be as short as 100 words, or whatever length suits you.

We’ll run the first post from one of our readers on Monday. We hope to hear from you.
