Summary

Now with a new foreword by Mark Galli. A collection of the earliest known writings of the church,The Apostolic Fathersincludes a sermon and six brief documents: the First and Second Epistles of Clement, the Didache, the Epistles of Ignatius, the Epistle of Polycarp, the Epistle about Polycarp's Martyrdom, and the Shepherd of Hermas."There are two ways, one of life and one of death," begins the Didache, "and between the two ways there is a great difference." Followers of the way of life today will find much encouragement of those who first embarked on the path two millennia ago.

Author Biography

The Apostolic Fathers featured in this collection are Clement, a foreign secretary in the church of Rome; Ignatius, a bishop of Syria; Polycarp, a bishop in Smyrna who was eventually martyred; and several anonymous authors. Their writings collected here span approximately AD 70-155 and reveal ways the early Christians understood and applied the teachings of the original apostles.
