Book Description

Who the Clement was to whom these writings are ascribed, cannot with
absolute certainty be determined. The general opinion is, that he is
the same as the person of that name referred to by St. Paul (Phil. iv.
3). The writings themselves contain no statement as to their author.
The first, and by far the longer of them, simply purports to have been
written in the name of the Church at Rome to the Church at Corinth. But
in the catalogue of contents prefixed to the ms. they are both plainly
attributed to one Clement; and the judgment of most scholars is, that,
in regard to the first Epistle at least, this statement is correct, and
that it is to be regarded as an authentic production of the friend and
fellow-worker of St. Paul. This belief may be traced to an early period
in the history of the Church. It is found in the writings of Eusebius
(Hist. Eccl., iii. 15), of Origen (Comm. in Joan., i. 29), and others.
The internal evidence also tends to support this opinion. The doctrine,
style, and manner of thought are all in accordance with it; so that,
although, as has been said, positive certainty cannot be reached on the
subject, we may with great probability conclude that we have in this
Epistle a composition of that Clement who is known to us from Scripture
as having been an associate of the great apostle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concise and full July 12, 2013
By Badger
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Full of scriptural references. Some similarity to Pauline epistles but not quite in the same league.
1st step in the little read path between Revelation & Augustine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value February 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Considering the price, I found this to be a great purchase. The table of contents it hyperlinked and typing mistakes are minimal. There were a few formatting issues, but they were not overly distracting.
