  1. Nicholas Smith Nicholas Smith says:

    This short collection brings together a number of the earliest Christian texts that exist outside the bible Reading these you have a real sense of the early church and their status as outsiders and using the teachings of Christ and the apostles in defiance of the prevailing times I would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in the pre Nicene church.

  2. Peter Marchant Peter Marchant says:

    There are ample introductory notes and footnotes but some puzzling questions are not addressed e.g Why does Clement mention continuing sacrifices in the Jerusualem Temple if his date is c 96 CE and Why does Barnabas, at a similar date, lead us to believe that the Christian church in Rome is of great antiquity

    These are letters to Eastern churches to be unified and harmonic There are some interesting points, but on the whole boring and not relevant for a general reader s interest.

    It s so good to have these letters, written so early on, by famous martyrs.
