"The Apostolic Fathers" is a collection of early Christian writings from the late first and early second centuries, traditionally considered to have been written by those connected with the Apostles, and therefore reflecting authentic Apostolic teaching. These writings include "1 Clement", "2 Clement", "Ignatius", "Polycarp", "Didache", "Barnabas", "Papias", "Hermas", "Martyrdom of Polycarp", "Diognetus", and "Quadratus". Considering their historical context, the Apostolic Fathers bear directly on the study of the New Testament, the development of the early Church, and the history of Christian theology. "The Apostolic Fathers: An Essential Guide" will explain the nature of the collected writings as they stand between the world of the New Testament and later Christian writers, focusing upon what the texts say about ancient Christian thinkers, early church developments, and the evolution of theological ideas prior to the great ecumenical councils.
