Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great Resource!August 12, 2015Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In 40 oversized pages you get an outstanding Introduction from the First to Fifth Centuries of Christianity. Setting Palestine in its proper context from just before Jesus, and discussing the influence of Judaism on early Christianity, the volume exposes us to the greater Greek influence of the times. From rising Hellenism to the evolving influence of Roman Rule, this work delves into the major influences of those times. Even the heresies that had such an effect are discussed.
Equally valuable are the profuse illustrations throughout coupled with fine Carta maps. This volume is excerpted from the large Cartas Illustrated History of History and so provides a more economical way to study this critical time period.
This volume would be effective for many uses: Bible classes, homeschool, personal study, or a refresher for pastors. I recommend this volume
