"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
