The saints in this book believed strongly in the Church and in the truths about Jesus Christ, proclaimed by the apostles and the bishops who followed them. All of these saints were themselves bishops who were called upon to defend these truths against pagan rulers, and of teachers who taught false doctrines. Their defense of the faith often involved bitter struggles, persecution, and even death. Because of their struggles they can all be called "fighters for the faith."
This booklet features the lives of St Cyprian of Carthage, St Athanasius the Great, St Cyril of Jerusalem, St John Chrysostom, and St Cyril of Alexandria.
