We may have more in common with Christians of the early church than we realize.
In Christianity in the Roman Empire, Robert Winn guides us through the history of Christianity from the first century to the years before Constantine. Winn bridges the gap between contemporary Christians and those who lived in the Roman Empire from AD 100–300, with engaging discussion questions and in-depth details about controversial topics (such as persecution and biblical interpretation) and figures of the time (such as Perpetua and Felicity, and Justin Martyr). This book will provide you with a deeper appreciation for the early Christians as you learn about their struggle in the face of cultural and societal pressures to build the faith community we have today.

“In this highly readable work, Robert Winn helpfully introduces readers to the key figures, both Christian and non-Christian, of the first three centuries such as Ignatius, Justin Martyr, Origen, Celsus, and Eusebius. His discussion questions stimulate readers to consider how we might apply lessons from these figures to our present situation, and his bibliographies invite them to further investigate these subjects.”
–Edwin M. Yamauchi, Professor of History Emeritus at Miami University
“In this age of hyper-specialization, few scholars are willing to invest time and energy into writing the introductory books that are so important for beginners. Robert Winn has deftly entered this space. Born from Winn’s years of teaching, Christianity in the Roman Empire is a worthy primer for those journeying into the world of the early Christians for the first time.”
–Dr. John O’Keefe, Professor of Theology at Creighton University
Robert E. Winn is a Professor of History at Northwestern College (Orange City, Iowa) and the author of Eusebius of Emesa: Church and Theology in the Mid-Fourth Century.
