From review:
This is a wonderful approach to delivering a text of this type. It begins with the original language text (Greek) and is followed by 4 different English translations. The original and translations are all organized into chapter/verse in order to quickly cross reference one to another. This makes it ideal for the Greek student wishing to see how various scholars have translated a given text. Thus making this a solid text for the scholar or the student of Greek and provides keen insights as a snapshot of the early Church. The Didache has been dated in the range of 50-120CE making it one of the earliest documents surviving from the early Church. Some believe The Didache stemmed from an earlier Jewish catechetical work with additions from the earliest Christian tradition, quite possibly originating with the Apostles. All of this makes this an ideal work for understanding the early Church as it really was from a primary source - a systematic teaching tool of the first century. A must have for anyone interested in the early Church or koine Greek.
