The Works Now Extant of St. Justin the Martyr


Justin Martyr was the first great apologist of the Christian faith. Though most of his life’s details remain obscure, his apologetic works remain among the most profound Christian documents ever produced. The Works Now Extant of St. Justin the Martyr contains his famous First Apology, addressed to the Emperor Antonius Pius, as well as his Second Apology, which, addressed the Roman Senate, augments and expands the first. Both works defend myriad aspects of the Christian faith, but especially focus on defending Christian practices, the congruence of Christian theology with reason, and the influence of Christians on Roman life. Justin also takes great care to defend Christianity and against accusations of immorality and atheism.
