This brief survey text tells the story of early Christianity. Cynthia White explores the emergence of Christianity in Rome during the first four centuries of the Greco-Roman empire, from the first followers of Jesus Christ, to conflicts between Christians and Jewish kings under Roman occupation, to the torture of Christian followers, Diocletian's reforms, and Constantine's eventual conversion to monotheism, which cemented Christianity's status as the official religion of Rome.

The text's chapters will integrate key pedagogy, including introductions, study questions, textboxes, photos, maps, suggested readings, and a glossary and timeline.

Review:

"Cynthia White's book covers an era that is intellectually challenging, historically complex and often emotionally charged. It does so in a manner that is lucid and crisply written, making it accessible to students and lay readers, and of value to scholars, as well. I applaud White's willingness to take on this difficult subject, and I appreciate her mastery of the material. Included alongside the excellent text are visually appealing illustrations, maps, charts and timelines, as well as biographies of central figures, significant passages from important primary texts, and thought-provoking study questions. It is a pleasure to recommend this valuable new book, which makes an important and original contribution to an oft-studied topic." --Beth Alpert Nakhai, Associate Professor and Acting Director, Arizona Center for Judaic Studies, The University of Arizona
