9780195398922: After the New Testament: 100-300 C.E.: A Reader in Early Christianity

Revealing the rich diversity of the early Christian movement, After the New Testament: 100-300 CE: A Reader in Early Christianity, Second Edition, brings together an extensive selection of texts from the second and third centuries, both "orthodox" and "heterodox." Selections include the writings of the Apostolic Fathers, the writings of Nag Hammadi, early pseudepigrapha, martyrologies, anti-Jewish tractates, heresiologies, canon lists, church orders, liturgical texts, and theological treatises. Featuring large textual excerpts--entire documents wherever possible--concise introductions, and lucid, up-to-date translations, After the New Testament is ideal for courses in Early Christianity, Christian Origins, and Early Church History.

About the Author:


Bart D. Ehrman is James A. Gray Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has written or edited more than twenty-five books, including The Bible (2013), Forgery and Counterforgery (2013), The New Testament, Fifth Edition (2012), and The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture, Second Edition (2011), all published by Oxford University Press.

Review:


"This is simply the best available sourcebook of its kind."--Susan Harvey, Brown University


"Anyone who teaches a class on early Christianity needs access to a collection of primary sources that have a brief introduction to each author, a clear and recent English translation, and excerpts short enough to be useful in an undergraduate survey class. This book fills that need, and I have been extremely grateful for its existence."--Christine Sheparson, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville


"I find After the New Testament to be very helpful and accessible. It is currently the best textbook available, since it offers a broad and rich selection of primary sources from early Christianity."--Charlotte Radler, Loyola Marymount University

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The remarkable diversity of Christianity during the formative years before the Council of Nicea has become a plain, even natural, fact for most ancient historians. Until After the New Testament, however, there had never been a sourcebook of primary texts that revealed the many varieties of Christian beliefs, practices, ethics, experiences, confrontations, and self-understandings. To help readers recognize and experience the rich diversity of the early Christian movement, After the New Testament, Second Edition, provides a wide range of texts from the second and third centuries, both orthodox and heterodox, including such works as the Apostolic Fathers, the writings of Nag Hammadi, early pseudepigrapha, martyrologies, anti-Jewish tractates, heresiologies, canon lists, church orders, liturgical texts, and theological treatises. Rather than providing only fragments of texts, this collection prints large excerpts-entire documents wherever possible-organized under social and historical rubrics. This unique reader s concise and informative introductions and clear and up-to-date English translations make it ideal for courses on Early Christianity, Christian Origins, or Early Church History. It will also appeal to anyone-student, scholar, and general reader alike-interested in the entire range of early Christian literature from the period after the New Testament up to the writings of the so-called father of church history, Eusebius. The Second Edition includes new and updated translations as well as considerable additions to the roster of sources, including excerpts from the Gospel of Mary, the Gospel of Judas, and the correspondence between Jesus and Abgar. The book also includes two brand-new rubrics of texts, one focusing on the method and practice of interpreting scripture, and the other focusing on women and gender in early Christianity.
