9780820405810: Early Christianity as a Social Movement (Toronto Studies in Religion)

Early Christianity as a Social Movement is a social scientific study of the first half century of Christianity, from its development after the lifetime of Jesus of Nazareth into the 80's of the first century C.E. The literary evidence, separated into five separate stages of the movement's history by means of source analyses of the early writings, is subjected to content analysis to depict early Christianity as a new religious movement. This movement is found to be largely unlike most of the modern new religious movements.

Review:

«Blasi's book represents an innovative, challenging, multidisciplinary attempt to assess the character of the early Church as a social movement from the text it has left us. It should provoke discussion among both social scientists and students of the Bible. The book contains enough sophistication to satisfy specialists, but is also general enough to appeal to a wider body of readers.» (William H. Swatos, Jr., Sociological Analysis)
«Blasi's volume is methodologically sophisticated and takes us far beyond previous studies that have treated Christianity as a unified social phenomenon.» (John S. Kloppenborg, Toronto Journal of Theology)
