Publisher's Description

A first-century pastoral manual

Aaron Milavec has written an important study of the Didache, one of the first major texts describing the way of life lived within a set of first-century Christian communities. A "pastoral manual" of sorts, it enumerates the step-by-step training of gentile converts for full active participation in the church communities of the mid-first century.

Milavec offers here a fresh translation, side by side Greek and English, of the work, along with extensive commentary. Of considerable length, this work is noteworthy because it places the text with the context of how the earliest Christians saw themselves in relation to the surrounding Roman, pagan society.

This landmark work is a must for:

-- scripture scholars.

-- historians.

-- graduate students.

-- university and seminary libraries.

    Heady Self-Importance Trumps Scholarly Treatise
    July 10, 2012

    Heady self-importance trumps scholarly treatise in this volume, sadly. The translation is adequate, however the gender-inclusion is unnecessary and serves only to bolster Milavec's own liberal agenda; the more grievous aspects of which are his questioning of the completeness and sufficiency of the New Testament. One would be much better off finding a decent English translation of the Didache, (there are many here,) to read and understand as a sort of primer for a new believer in the first century Roman world than suffering this theory that is really quite baseless since it removes itself from the larger context of the New Testament, even the writings of the earliest Church Fathers who did depend on the writings of the Apostles.

    Great book. Very informative. Unique view of an ancient text. You will not find a more thorough theory.
