While Lightfoot and Harmer produced a magnificent work for their time, advances in the past century, including new manuscript discoveries, dictate that their work be updated.

How are the "Apostolic Fathers" different from the "Early Church Fathers?" In brief, the writings known as the Apostolic Fathers include only the texts thought to have been written by people who knew the Apostles or were one degree separated from them. Cotelier entitled Ss.

The Apostolic Fathers are represented primarily by one manuscript (yes, there are more for 1 and 2 Clement). As such, the Greek text for most of these has not undergone significant changes due to better texts being discovered in the last 100 years.

Arrived as expected, the translation I wanted, with the OLD ENGLISH TEXT, originally from J.B
Lightfoot. I had compared it with the 3rd revised edition of Michael Holmes. Very smiliar, (not exactly the same tho) I compared Epistle of barnabas from the 1984 revised edition of Lightfoot and the 3rd edition of Michael Holmes (originally Lightfoot and Harmer). But I am fine with the OLD ENGLISH style, more accurate, and to me, words of wisdom. All glory be to God. Not all things are true, but seek the Lord for knowledge, whosoever lacks anything let him ask freely of the Lord, who gives freely and scolds no one. I am not in agreement with Ignatius, and perhaps I won't be with polycarp. I have not read Clement, but I bought it for the Epistle of Barnabas and Diognetus. To God be all glory.

Arrived as expected. No issues.

While the text itself is perfectly fine and useful, the picture is NOT the proper item. This is why I only rated it at two stars, because I did not receive the English translation with the Greek text as the picture told me I would.

I recommend this edition of The Apostolic Fathers for two main reasons: its clear and readable translation and its concise but scholarly introductions providing an assessment of each writing's historical context, theological themes, and relevancy for contemporary evangelicals.

Just getting started with the book.

Being both a neophyte in the faith of Christianity and the history of the Church, my hunger for reading both the Bible and other early Christian manuscripts has flourished. How does one come to the truth in a faith that is so full of opinion in doctrine, and misunderstood tradition? I guess if I knew that answer, I wouldn't be so involved in searching these texts. Regardless, I do trust that the truth is there, and that the Spirit has both lead and will lead me to it.
This book has been one of those occasions in which I feel that the Spirit and God's timing were working in me. At a time when all of the negative parts of the Church were bringing me down, this text has helped me to focus on what is really important in my faith, my walk with Christ.
To begin, the works of such early martyrs such as Polycarp, help one to see just what was going on in the mind of a man of faith who knows that he will be honored to recieve the same persecutions as his Lord. In this day and age, the idea or desire of such a sacrifice is alien to the majority of Christians, and other than 2 Maccabees, is only hinted at in the Bible.
Also, to have a glimpse of what was happening in the church shortly after the demise of the apostles, is very enlightening. Although the scraps that make up quotations of the lost letters of Papias are less than adequate, one finds that early after the distribution of Revelation, the argument over a millenial kingdom raged. Since Papias was under the tutilage of John (the elder, or the apostle, I won't argue that one) in Ephesis, his point of veiw on this matter should not be ignored, though he was proclaimed a heretic later on.
Finally, the most important aspects of this text is the concern that these early Church leaders had in the direction that the Church was leading. Questions that popped up at these times were and still are very important to the understanding of how one walks in the faith after one has come to it. These texts are strong in explaining the importance of a life of good works and the importance of unity amongst the congregations.
Also, we get a glimpse of what was happening at that troublesome Church in Corinth after the apostles were no longer an influence. In a way, some of the most practical instruction has been written because of this Church, and they didn't stop in needing more after Paul's demise.

This book is a must-have for any Christian who wants to know the historical and theological roots of his/her faith. It shows that many "recent controversies" in the church were present from the very beginning--and answered effectively by men steeped in the Old Testament and the Gospel.
This book covers all the important manuscripts of the early Church. This volume excells in its coverage of the earliest Church documents. The only draw back is the lack of Justin Martyr's Apologies. Other than that this book is an excellent source for reading about the Apostolic Fathers.
