About this product
- DescriptionIn 1873, a copy of the long lost Didache was discovered in a library in Constantiple. Since its publication a decade later, this little book has attracted a large amount of scholarly attention due to the light its sheds on the beliefs and practices of the early Christians. Dr. William Varner has written this volume to familiarize readers with these past and present scholarly discussions. Dr. Varner offers his own analytical translation of the Didache and sets forth some fresh ideas about the book's original purpose and its relationship to the New Testament. He also suggests how the message of this first Christian handbook can inform the church today. This is an accessible introduction, t only to an ancient Christian text, but also to how the earliest Christians responded to the challenge of their new lives.
- Author BiographyWilliam Varner is Professor of Biblical Studies at The Master's College in Santa Clarita, CA, and directs the college's Israel Study Program.
