Description

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.
