The Apostolic Fathers: Greek Texts and English Translations

Front Cover
Michael William Holmes
Baker Books, 1999 - Religion - 609 pages
This book is an important collection of writings revered by early Christians but not included in the final canon of the New Testament. Here a leading expert on these texts offers an authoritative contemporary translation, in the tradition of the magisterial Lightfoot version but thoroughly up-to-date. The third edition features numerous changes, including carefully revised translations and a new, more user-friendly design. The introduction, notes, and bibliographies have been freshly revised as well.
