Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800660633, Hardcover)

Extremely popular in its time, The Shepherd of Hermas is a second century work often used for instruction of catechumens, and in fact widely regarded as scripture. In it Hermas, a rich freed slave whose wealth was not always lawfully obtained, undergoes and relates several visions (including one from an angel disguised as a shepherd), repents, and offers counsel on Christian teaching and behavior.

Comprehensive and careful, Carolyn Osiek's is the only full-length commentary on "The Shepherd" in English. Hermas's revelations afford us glimpses of the religious imagination, social world, and moral ideas among early second-century Roman Christians.
