An excellent, readable, and highly engaging introduction to the writings of the Apostolic Fathers and the world of early second-century Christianity. . . . This book is essential reading for anybody interested in the origins and development of earliest Christianity.
—Paul Foster, senior lecturer, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh
A solid introduction to the Apostolic Fathers and an excellent overview of German-oriented scholarship on these important early Christian writers. Each contributor in this volume is a recognized expert on the documents they discuss. The consistent treatment in each chapter of ‘Intertextual Relationships’ and ‘Theological Profile’ is a real strength—in the latter case, one that sets it apart from its competitors.
