Product Description

How did the emerging Christian ideas about God and Jesus compare with religious concepts prevalent in the Greco-Roman world? Beginning with a discussion of Paul's encounters with other religions in the Book of Acts, Grant describes Christian opposition to idolatry, the philosophical movement toward monotheism, and the development of Christian doctrine and creeds.
