Primary sources all in one book.
I found this book very useful to gain insight into the writing of the thinkers and historians which shaped the early Church. There was a nice mix of selections from many view points (Christian, Jewish, Pagan and secular). The selections were presented with enough commentary to understand possible biases. It was free from the usual habit of citing a selection as supporting evidence but then not giving the text of the selection. A great addition for students of Christianity in its earliest years who do not have access to a large library to chase down footnotes. This book has many of the writings I have seen cited in other books but in one text.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
