'In sum: this is a fine and important book, with excellent essays.' Church Times 'As no-one can keep abreast of every aspect of the discipline, this volume will be useful even to specialists who may not be fully aware of developments outside their immediate field of interest. ... this is a most useful book which will be of great help to anyone who needs a guide to part or all of the period which it covers.' Evangelical Quarterly '... the most exhaustive treatment of early Christian literature in quite some time, and is an indispensable reference work.' Religious Studies Review 'The Cambridge History of early Literature is a first-rate work of Scholarship. it will be a welcome addition to those handy reference shelves and may well bump some works that are already there to a lower place.' Scottish Journal of Theology 'The Cambridge History of Early Christian Literature is a first-rate work of scholarship. it will be a welcome addition to those handy reference shelves and may well bump some works that are already there to a lower place.' Journal of SJT 'There are three standard approaches to the study of ancient Christianity. One is historical, another is theological, and finally a third approach is literary. ... The present Cambridge history masterfully integrates these three approaches into one volume, which its editors rightly hope will become 'a standard work of reference.' It is indeed a superb volume, which as its title indicates surveys early Christian literature from its beginnings up to the middle of the fifth century.' Gregorianum 'This volume will certainly stand both as a statement of the progress made so far in this field and as a prospectus for future ...' Journal of Theological Studies
