A series on 10 Church Fathers: whom to choose?

Recently I was asked this question from a brother who hoped to teach a Sunday School of 20 weeks on the Church Fathers and look at ten of the Fathers; he asked, “Which Church Fathers would you cover in a series such as this?”

  1. Ignatius of Antioch
  2. Irenaeus of Lyons
  3. Tertullian
  4. Cyprian
  5. Origen
  6. Athanasius
  7. Basil of Caesarea
  8. Macarius-Symeon
  9. Augustine
  10. Patrick of Ireland
