THE DAWN OF CHRISTIANITY
How God Used Simple Fishermen, Soldiers, and Prostitutes to Transform the World
By Robert J. Hutchinson
This book answers questions about the early church and how it came to be. The author has divided the book into four parts. Part one, the road to Jerusalem, is about the entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem and what took place up to the crucifixion. The second part, Alive, is the story of what took place from the resurrection to coming of the Holy Spirit. Part three, the beginning of persecution, the ministry of Peter to the stoning of Stephen. and the conversion of Saul. Part four, the expansion of the Jesus movement, covers the ministry of Paul to the Gentles to spreading the word around the world.
The author shares information about what took place using other historical writings as well as the Bible. Written in an easy to understand story style. A time line chart is included showing when things took place with scripture references. A list of who’s who in the early Jesus movement is also included.
The book should give a better understanding of what took place from the start of Jesus’s ministry to the start of the church. This would be an asset for working with new believers. A great addition to any library.
