Description
Snyder examines the first century of Christianity: the period directly following the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and preceding the fall of Rome. Posing the question of how Christianity survived in the predominantly pagan Roman Empire, he interweaves Biblical, Jewish, and Roman sources, chronicling the turbulent, often violent, era subsequent to the death of Octavian Caesar Augustus. From A.D. 30 to A.D. 71, Christians lived in flux and peril, yet they managed to persevere and even to thrive in an extremely hostile environment. Paradoxically, the very chaos that threatened Christianity also provided members of this new faith with both a focal point and the opportunity to band together in opposition to a common enemy. Arranged chronologically, this account provides a comprehensive overview of a transitional juncture in church history.
