Endorsements

"A beautiful piece of bookmaking, so nice that the many on this blog who already own an earlier edition will want to get a copy of this one. . . . The book is a small, green hardback, and approximately the same size as the small NA27. The paper has good opacity yet is so thin that the 800 pages are only slightly thicker than the NA27's 800 pages. The paper is also whiter than the creamy NA27. Most pleasant of all for reading is the font and generous leading (white space between lines). One's impression while reading is that this is delightfully 'clean' and 'clear.'. . . A stitched, gold-ribbon place marker allows one to restrain the English side of the book and to comfortably read with one hand. . . . The textual apparatus in general has been 'significantly expanded.' At the same time, references in the text to the apparatus have been simplified so as not to distract from smooth reading."--Randall Buth, evangelicaltextualcriticism.blogspot.com

"The introductions to each text incorporate the best insights of recent scholarship, the original language texts themselves have been revised in light of fresh manuscript discoveries, the translations have been entirely recast, and the bibliographies are full and up to date. Thus, this third edition should be viewed as Holmes' own new work and it promises to be of great use to readers for generations to come. . . . The publisher, Baker Academic, is to be applauded for producing a pocket-sized hardback edition of this book that naturally stays open on the desired page. In an age where quality of book production is too often diminishing, it is refreshing to see the amount of thought that has gone into producing a book that is in a format that makes its use by readers easy and pleasurable. . . . The clarity of typeface adopted for this edition also facilitates the reading of both the original texts and the translations. Turning from the physical features of this notable volume to its actual contents, one will notice that the same exceptionally high standard is maintained. . . . Without doubt the new edition of Michael Holmes' Apostolic Fathers is a landmark volume. It is unusual to make such a statement about a revised publication. However, the truth is that this is no mere light revision--rather it is the product of meticulous, insightful scholarship which, although carefully built upon the foundation laid by Lightfoot and Harmer, nonetheless is a scholarly edifice that has been skillfully constructed by Holmes himself. The presentation is magnificent, the attention to detail first class, and the actual contents repay close study. This book is an essential addition to the libraries of all interested in the history of early Christianity, and even if one owns an earlier edition it is now time to update one's library with this highly significant volume."--Paul Foster, Expository Times

    As a long time student of the Greek NT, I find this work to be both stimulating and comforting. For years, I have considered the probable course of events that led the primitive church to take on the form of the post-apostolic church. More than any other volume, this book takes me to the time and events that caused those changes to occur. In order to understand the nature and form(s) of the church today, you must transport yourself back to time of the apostolic fathers. For me, this collection is the appropriate vehicle. It is a gift to the saints.

    Michael Holmes has done a great job providing text, critical apparatus and translation of the Apostolic Fathers (70-150AD). I found this work accessible, scholarly and an invaluable aid for contextual appreciations of early Christianity and NT texts. Well worth the relatively small amount I paid for it from Christianbook.com! Phillip Lisle, PhD student, BA(Hons, History), BTheol (Biblical Studies)
