Those Incredible Christians
From The Publisher:
Many thousands of people no longer know what to believe about Christianity. Much that the Church has taught for centuries is now being challenged: not only is it out of date, say the critics, but also nothing to do with the mind of Jesus and his immediate disciples. How can it be shown to have been the product of human ingenuity and the pressures of circumstances much later than the time of Jesus?
A fascinating reconstruction of the events surrounding the formation of the Church in the first hundred years of its existence. He gives a clear explanation of the individual contributions of Paul and John, the chief theologians, and describes the factions and rivalries, the bid for power by the church of Rome, the forgery of documents (some of them in the New Testament itself), and he deals fully with the conflict between the early Christians and the Roman Empire.
