Christianity Roots

I was just reading. So many names from Christianity's roots I know: Augustine, Athanasius, Clement, Desert Fathers, Origen, and Tertullian - and many of them I've blogged about, I just thought them what? Middle Eastern? Greek?

We just assume (without really thinking) most of our roots are European. But in reality many of the early church roots are African! There's a great article about a book and a call to reclaim Christianity's roots.
