How did the first Christians practice their faith? The Didache, an early handbook of an anonymous Christian community, “is the most important book you’ve never heard of.” It spells out a way of life for Jesus-followers, including how to love one another, how to practice the Eucharist, and how to take in wandering prophets.

Likely written before many of the New Testament books, this little-known text can enlighten the way that Christians are church, today. Tony Jones unpacks the ancient document with insight and perspective, and traces the life of a small house church in Missouri that is trying to live according to its precepts. Includes a new,contemporary English translation of the complete text of the Didache.
