Am I correct that the Reader's Lexicon of Apostolic Fathers is just on the so-called Apostolic Fathers & not on a wider group of "Church Fathers"? The link in the description offering more information takes one to a different title, Reading Scripture with the Church Fathers.  Is this second work a commentary on what the Church Fathers say or is it a lexicon?  The image supplied says to click on it to see it enlarged, but when I click, the system fails.  And the little image is too blurry in my eyes to read it.  Can someone describe these 2 works for me & tell me if there is redundancy between the two?  Can you compare the two works?  Thanks in advance

Yes.

More of the former than the latter.
