Product Description

The Apostolic Fathers: An Introduction is a superb introduction to the key writings of the generation of Christians that immediately followed the Apostles. Eleven leading experts each examine a different document produced by the Apostolic Fathers. Those writings include:

  • The Didiache
  • The Epistle of Barnabas
  • The First Epistle of Clement
  • The Seciond Epistle of Clement
  • The Epistles of Ignatius of Antioch
  • The Epistle of Polycarp
  • The Martyrdom of Polycarp
  • The Papyias Documents
Each treatment provides discussion on topics such as textual integrity, authorship, and historicity, and the theological themes from each letter. The book's last chapter ties the commentary on these documents by looking at them in their original context and translating their significance to modern Christianity.
