Product description

A discussion of 'primitive' Christianity - Christianity in its original form, this work was first given as Speaker's Lectures in Oxford. Covering the first five centuries of Christianity, it argues that neither a theology of the New Testament nor a history of the early Church can do justice to all the dimensions of the earliest Christianity. It explores in depth the formation of primitive Christianity and studies the effect of the two great crises of primitive Christianity: the split with Judaism and the threat from Gnosticism. It is aimed at academic theologians.

This is an excellent book, applying contemporary, mainly sociological, thinking to the development of thought and action in the early Christian community. In my view, the history constructed in this way is both secularly-plausible and marvellous to the eye of faith.
