The six essays contained in this book are an excellent introduction to some of the major Christian authors from just after the time of the apostles, to the death of Origen in 253. Each essay includes not only Hort's view of the sophistication-levels of these authors, but also translated extracts from their major works. There is not a lot of technical language, and thus this book should be understandable to those new to its subjects.
