Product Details

Editorial Reviews


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

From the Inside Flap
