Along with such writings in this volume are also the works of two major Church thinkers, Justin Martyr (100-165) and Irenaeus (130-202). Justin Martyr (martyred 165) wrote two 'Apologies' (that is, court-room-style Defences of Christianity) to the Emperor, and also transcribed a Dialogue with a Judaic Jewish man called Trypho. These writings are priceless documents giving us insight into how these early Christians lived, thought, and prayed and worshipped, as well as how they perceived the world around them. Justin, for example, taught that God the eternal Word, who assumed humanity as Jesus Christ, had guided both ancient Israel and the pagans--he had taught the Law to the Jewish nation and guided pagans with the wisdom that led them to their highest ethical and philosophical aspirations.Read more ›

With Justin Martyr arguably the Greatest Christian Philosopher of all time and Irenaeus a direct follow of the generations proceeding the Apostles what more needs to be said?
Still, I highly recommend hunting down all of the writings in this book in some form if you have the slightest interest in early Christian history. There is a lot of really good stuff in here.
