This book covers a relatively narrow topic, but introduces the reader to much primary source material. This would be a great addition to any library.
Furthermore, one doesn't need to read every single document to note some of the tendencies in the early church. At times the author's pacifist background comes through, but for the most part, this book appears to be unbiased. Perhaps there is more evidence to be taken note of, but this is a great introduction.
