- Publisher Early Christian writings form a body of literature that has shaped Western culture as a whole, as the authors demonstrate in this comprehensive book. The first six centuries of Christian experience impacted art and developed a philosophy that faced opposition, resolved internal conflicts, transposed itself into medieval civilization and continues to influence culture today. This two volume edition available for the first time in English organizes the material in chronological order. The books also includes a general bibliography, and each volume includes an index of authors and anonymous works.

- Publisher Available for the first time in English, "Early Christian Greek and Latin Literature" highlights the special character of the gospel message, the nucleus of every Christian literary form. The earliest Christian works from the first through the fourth centuries are presented along with respected contemporary writings in the first volume. The second volume moves to the Golden Age of Christian literature. The major personalities of the time-Ambrose, Jerome, Augustine, all writers of the highest rank-are matched with Greek-speaking authors such as Athanasius, the Cappadocians, and John Chrysostom, thinkers to whom present-day Christians turn once again for spiritual direction.
