Justin Taylor, our fellow blogger at Evangel, has already posted a blog that brought attention to J. Ligon Duncan’s address at Together for the Gospel 2010 conference, “Did the Church Fathers Know the Gospel?” At the risk of redundancy, I am compelled to bring further attention to this lucid and helpful address.

For Protestants with an evangelical background like myself, this is essential watching because we are either ignorant or suspicious of the church fathers. For Catholics and the Orthodox, this video is worth watching because it gives you an evangelical and Reformed perspective on the church fathers.
