There is an active table of contents here, but for some unknown reason the publisher has gone for grey text in the main body of this, rather than black type. There is a foreword here as well as an introduction before the main text. I should point out that to those unaware of this work, it is very short. Like The Shepherd of Hermas it is unclear when this was originally written, and as it says in the introduction this could be one person taking pieces from other works to create what are Church Orders. This could be indeed one of the earliest known catechisms. Coming under the writings of the Apostolic Fathers this is non-Canonical and thus not an accepted piece for the Bible, but for those interested in the Early Christian Church this is an interesting and quick read.

It is always interesting to see how perceptions and teachings alter over the years, so if you are into the history of the Church, then this is probably something of a must have.

Wondering how the faith developed from the time of the Apostles? This is your answer. This is a small, easy read, and will answer a lot of your questions concerning how and when certain Christian practices came about, such as fasting and the Eucharist. Highly recommend reading this little jewel.

Studying theology this book was recommended. This window into our early Christian past which was left out of our canon (bible) is a fascinating read and to think, it was left out only just as much as revelation was included!

Wowee! I'd heard of this but actually reading it is a true eye-opener into 1st Century Christianity. Its not the bible, but it comes jolly close.

As an historical text, this book is unvaliable and it show that Christian spirit have been the same across the centuries. Very good.

A reasonably useful book but of lot of the pages are taken up with things not actually to do with Didache. {Peter Baden

A really interesting take on common teachings in the early church. It is basically a summary of key teachings.

Can't confirm what it says is the proper way things happened but it is an interesting read. I liked it

Given the age of the original work and how few pages it has I was surprised to have to pay for a copy.

Although it some ways it was interesting it was not as helpful as I had thought it would be.

Stick with the scripture we currently have in the Bible - don't go looking as these other early works whose provenance appears to be uncertain.
