Jefford provides the basic historical information on each text including its provenance and associated problems while also discussing manuscript evidence. Each chapter is arranged in a question-answer format, and near the end of each chapter an outline is given and any connection to the biblical material is noted. Lastly, Jefford also provides a succinct but quite helpful bibliography for extended reading on each letter. Supplemental charts and maps round out this volume nicely.

This book, intended as a quick and simple guide to the Apostolic Fathers, achieves its goals admirably.
