Catena Bible App

This Bible App has over 60,000 references to the early church fathers who lived closer to the time of the Apostles and Prophets. I have used this app numerous times and found it to be very informative. The only set back would be trying to understand it in the context in which it was written, therefore you must compare the information with other sources.
