Have you ever wondered how the New Testament was formed? Were there books that were left out? What did those books say? These are some of the questions on the minds of many people. Too often, local congregations ignore these questions, often to the detriment of the church...however, these questions about Christian origins are still very real in the hearts and minds of many people today.

From one of the most significant writers about Christian origins comes the original editions of the 'Apostolic Fathers', who were among the first disciples of the original 12 apostles. These were early Christian writings that are attributed to church leaders of the late first and early second centuries. Clement, for example, was an early leader in Rome (circa 96 CE); Ignatius wrote a number of letters to churches in various cities (circa 110 CE), loosely following in the footsteps of Paul.

This two-volume set is the classic edition of the Apostolic Fathers in the Loeb Classical Library edited by Kirsopp Lake nearly a century ago. The text is extremely readable, and the introductions to each of the books are clear, succinct, and to the point.

Some of these books almost made it into the New Testament! The epistles of Clement are found in some early New Testament manuscripts and were widely read in the early churches. The Shepherd of Hermas may have been the most widely read book by early Christians. Several of these books were probably written before some of books in the New Testament. In an age in which people are asking questions about the origins of Christianity and the authority of the scriptures, it is crucial that we have at least a basic understanding of our early history.
