"For half a century, A New Eusebius has been the means by which many of us first heard the voices of the early Christians in their own recording. This anthology still provides the most noteworthy witnesses to the Church's formation in its sufferings, doctrinal disputes, and professions of faith."--D. H. Williams, Baylor University
