Stephen and Bear discuss the young roaring Lion of the early church and how they worshiped, what the key beliefs were in regards to the Eucharist and even Mary and how the Bishop of Rome (Pope) became significant. It's so cool to see the early church through the eyes of these believers. Its like seeing a Lion roaring in its natural habitat.
