Editorial Reviews


"a solid, readable, and thorough introduction."―Paul Hartog, Faith Baptist Theological Seminary, Trinity Journal

"An excellent, readable, and highly engaging introduction to the writings of the Apostolic Fathers and the world of early second-century Christianity. . . . This book is essential reading for anybody interested in the origins and development of earliest Christianity."―Paul Foster, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh

"A solid introduction to the Apostolic Fathers and an excellent overview of German-oriented scholarship on these important early Christian writers. Each contributor in this volume is a recognized expert on the documents they discuss. The consistent treatment in each chapter of 'Intertextual Relationships' and 'Theological Profile' is a real strength―in the latter case, one that sets it apart from its competitors."―Dr. Michael W. Holmes, University Professor of Biblical Studies and Early Christianity, Bethel University
