A fresh, modern translation of key works of the apostolic fathers.
The “Apostolic Fathers” wrote what has become some of the most important literature in the early church—letters and epistolary documents, homilies and theological tracts, documents on church order, and apocalyptic literature. In fact, some texts came close to inclusion in the New Testament canon. The near-canonical status of the writings of the Apostolic Fathers in the early church makes their importance for modern study undisputed. These translations by Rick Brannan are perfect for use by students, scholars, and everyday Christians interested in these treasures of the early church.
