Starting with 2nd-century epistolary writings, he examines the most significant apologies, martyrologies, antiheretical polemics, biblical commentaries, sermons, Augustine's invention of spiritual autobiographies, and more.

In this groundbreaking work, esteemed historian of Christianity Justo González chooses to focus on the literature of early Christianity. Beginning with the epistolary writings of the earliest Christian writers of the second century CE, he moves through apologies, martyrologies, antiheretical polemics, biblical commentaries, sermons, all the way up through Augustines invention of spiritual autobiography and beyond.
