Justin Martyr set himself to convince his readers of the truth of the Christian faith. He sets the scene around a chance encounter with some Jews while he is waiting to sail away. He uses both Hebrew and Christian Scriptures to prove that the crucified Christ is the Messiah promised to the Jewish people and the Son of God. Interestingly, when he and the group of Jews led by Trypho say goodby to each other, very little animosity is left between them, although no assent is given to the content of Justin's long discourse: a plus for modern time readers.
The Kindle typeset of the book is clear and easy on the eyes; the translation of the text from its original language flows without difficulties and makes the reading both pleasant and enjoyable. There is, however, a black mark on the whole enterprise (apart from some minor, rare typos): all credits given for the numerous quotations are embedded in the text without distinction from it. This turns to be a nuisance and an obstacle to good reading, and gives a non professional look to the book.
I'll give only one example:---For, mentioning the Scripture which says, 'Woe unto them! for they have devised evil counsel against themselves, saying' Isaiah 3:9 (as the Seventy have translated, I continued): ...
A more correct way, suitable for better reading, would be to place in brackets [Isaiah 3:9] distinguishing the credit for the quote from the text. This should be done throughout the whole book.
All in all, I have enjoyed the reading, though naturally not all the arguments put forward by Justin to arrive at the conclusions he wished to reach.

This book is an absolute must for students of Early Christianity. Jews and Christians were still very close at that time, which is reflected by Justin's dialogues. Justin Martyr was a disciple of Paul. The book learns us much about the reception and understanding of Paul in the 2nd Century.

I purchased this book for a Christology class I am taking at the graduate level. This version comes in hard cover and soft cover. Mine has a soft cover and is holding up very well. This version is probably the best one. A classmate has the same book by another publisher; it has numbers for the footnotes, but the footnotes are not there!! What a drag. I would recommend this one. It was delivered in the time frame promised, too. Reading the introduction will make it easier to jump into the dialogue.

The writing style of Justin Martyr makes the book a difficult read. It is an interesting explanation of some christian teachings from the first century AD. Justin's explanations are not always well reasoned so to a modern Christian some of his interpretation of biblical writings will seem odd.
