Ehrman’s new Loeb Library edition of The Apostolic Fathers (a title unknown before the 17th century) presents a scholarly edition, with a lively translation, of Christian writings that circulated before the Biblical canon was established.—Tom D’Evelyn, The Christian Science Monitor

The Apostolic Fathers is a greatly needed and valuable contribution to the field of early Christian literature. The outlined contemporary discussions will enhance one’s understanding not only of the texts but of the current methodology and views regarding the reading of the works. The two volumes are highly recommended for graduate students and scholars.—Despina Prassas, New England Classical Journal

Bart Ehrman’s new text and translation of the Apostolic Fathers in the Loeb series is an excellent example of solid scholarship presented in an accessible and engaging manner… Ehrman’s general introduction contains a helpful bibliography, and is complemented by lively and accessible introductions to each individual text… This is a fine introduction to some important texts, and a worthy successor to the edition of Kirsopp Lake that it now supersedes.—Andrew Gregory, Themelios
