Summary

The Apostolic Fathers are a group of early Christian authors whose writings date back to the middle of the first century. Included among the Apostolic Fathers are St. Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, St. Polycarp of Smyrna, Didache, Barnabas of Alexandria, The Shepherd of Hermas, and Diognetus. Though their writings are not included in the New Testament, these Christian leaders are believed to have had contact with Jesus' twelve disciplines. This collection of writings reveals the practices and theology of early Pauline Christianity as it developed in churches across different cultures. In order to preserve the authenticity of these writings, this version of Apostolic Fathers remains in the original Greek; the book will be useful for pastors, scholars, and seminarians who are familiar with the Greek language.
