See You in the Big Apple


I’ll be in NYC this weekend for three events with Phyllis Tickle, Jon Sweeney, and many other friends. You can find more info here. If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you.

Audio of the Didache

As part of my new book, The Teaching of the Twelve: Believing & Practicing the Primitive Christianity of the Ancient Didache Community, the editor, Jon Sweeney, and I wrote a new translation of the Didache.  If you don’t know what the Didache is, um, well, buy the book!  In short, it’s a little handbook of Christian life from a very early Christian community — I date it before the gospels.

We’re going to make our translation available for free, via a Creative Commons License, next week.  Until then, I offer you my reading of our translation (17 minutes, mp3 file).
