Publishers Description Shepherd's Notes- Christian Classics Series is designed to give readers a quick, step by step overview of some of the enduring treasures of the Christian faith. They are designed to be used along side the classic itself- either in individual study or in a study group. The faithful of all generations have found spiritual nourishment in the Scriptures and in the works of Christians of earlier generations. Martin Luther and John Calvin would not have become who they were apart from their reading Augustine. God used the writings of Martin Luther to move John Wesley from a religion of dead works to an experience at Aldersgate in which his "heart was strangely warmed." Shepherd's Notes will give pastors, laypersons, and students access to some of the treasures of Christian faith.

Reviews - What do customers think about Writings Of Justin Martyr (Shepherd's Notes)?
Excellent for Research Jan 19, 2007
The translations are a little difficult to read, but the notes completed my understanding.
Disappointment Dec 8, 2006
This was a dissappointment. The name of the book is The Writings of Justin Martyr. It needs to be titled Writings on the Writings of Justin Martyr. Its a commentary on his writings, not the writings of Justin.
A satisfying teaser Aug 21, 2006
Justin Martyr's Apologies are phenomenal. This book is just a quick glimpse at his works, but gives a real flavor of his passion and thinking. Profoundly relevant--especially for the church in America. He touches on issues such as engagement with cultural themes in explaining Christianity to unbelievers as well as persecution, imprisonment, torture and death for confessing faith in Christ. It's very convicting when considering how poorly and impatiently we "suffer" through our modern-day indignities. Very convicting.
About Justin Martyr, Not By Him Jun 15, 2001
I ordered this and was disappointed to find that it was like Cliff's Notes. It's virtually useless unless you already have a copy of Justin's writings (and who does?). I suppose for six bucks I shouldn't complain.
Would it really have killed them to provide some extra pages of his writings, in keeping with the ambiguous title? Say, twenty or thirty pages. It's not like they're copyrighted by the author's estate. Heck, I can probably grab an English translation of Justin off the web for free. Hey wait a minute, why didn't I think of that before buying this thing?
A Companion for the Patristic Theology Novice Oct 17, 2000
Shepherd's Notes accommodate readers with the basic teachings and ideas of some of Christianity's greatest thinkers. This particular volume contains sound, general overviews of all of St Justin Martyr's writings and is, overall, a good primer for his theological and polemical works. It must be noted that Shepherd's Notes is evangelical in orientation but it is pretty fair to Catholic tradition. Excellent for intro-theology students.
