Description : John Dominic Crossan explores the lost years of earliest Christianity, the years immediately following Jesus' execution. He establishes the contextual setting through a combination of literary, anthropological, historical and archaeological approaches. He challenges the assumptions about the role of Paul and the meaning of resurrection, and forges a new understanding of the birth of the Christian church. Here is a vivid account of early Christianity's interaction with the world around it, and of the new traditions and communities established as Jesus' companions continued their movement after his death.

Description : Originally published in 1953, The Birth of Christianity analyses the development of Christian doctrine and the establishment of the Church. The book traces the history of the formation of the Church as a new religious society and considers its development both in the realm of thought as well as on a social level, in both emotional life and moral action. It explores how the Christian faith first found expression in society through a variety of forms that were gradually assimilated into one system of doctrine, and examines both how Christian theology and dogma were formed, and how the Church developed its constitution. The Birth of Christianity will appeal to those with an interest in the history of religion, the history of Christianity, theology, and the philosophy of religion.

Description : About this Book and this Book Series A Bible Story Called Easter and the Birth of Christianity: NLT - New Living Translation - English is an illustrated chronological Bible-excerpt story covering the events surrounding Jesus Christ's final Passover week through the following Pentecost observance. This second illustrated book in the series covers the most significant eight weeks of Christianity's beginnings. The events covered here comprise core components of Christian theology. The book-template source for each book in the series is the published and copyrighted Appendix A, which specifies how to integrate the 63 public domain watercolor images created in the 1890's by French artist James Tissot with 655 selected Bible verses recorded in the first century in the Greek language by the authors of the New Testament Gospels. The book template's matrix format, "Gospels' Comparative Text Alignment" [G'CTA], creates a single chronological story through the parallel alignment of the four Gospel authors' narratives. This matrix format is often referred to as a Harmony of the Gospels. This second illustrated book in the series, NLT - New Living Translation, is a derivative work compilation that presents the 655 Bible verses in English, using the NLT Bible translation [ version (c) 2015 ]. A "fair use" permission for publication using this Bible translation has been granted by Tyndale House Publishers. Negotiations are also in process to produce other series books in English using the NABRE (Catholic), the NIV (New International Version) and the NKJV (New King James Version) Bible translation.

Description : About the "Appendix A" Book Template In the fall of 2011, an idea/concept began formulating for a book series covering the events of the most significant eight weeks of Christianity's beginnings, events comprising core components of Christian theology - Jesus Christ's final Passover Week through the following Pentecost observance (when first 3,000 Christians were baptized, after hearing apostles' speaking in the listeners' native languages.) Using a "Harmony of the Gospels" matrix format, the intent is to compile a single chronological story derived from the endings of the four gospels and first two chapters of Acts. (See Table of Contents showing the 655 selected Bible verses.) The four matrix columns contain Bible verses from (1) Matthew, (2) Mark, (3) Luke, and (4) John, then Acts. Where the verses from multiple gospels are describing same (sub)event, the narratives are placed in horizontal parallel alignment on the page ( "Gospels' Comparative Text Alignment" [G'CTA] ). To produce a single chronological story, discrepancies in event sequences in the four gospels had to be resolved. After careful analysis, publishing editor had to make a subjective decision as to the sequence the events would be ordered in the text. (Those column verses presented out of sequence are boxed in an orange double border.) A small number of the selected 655 Bible gospel verses are not present in the earliest surviving gospel manuscripts. The text of those passages are italicized and in green font. A suggestion to illustrate the books (to be created from this derivative work compilation book template) was implemented after finding 365 public domain watercolor images created by James Tissot in the late 1800's. We selected 63 images (from volumes III & IV of The Life of Our Saviour Jesus Christ published in the USA in 1899) to be placed adjacent to corresponding Bible verses in the text. (Bible verses illustrated by adjacent images are double-underlined in the matrix table.) The resulting chronological G'CTA matrix table was then subdivided into 78 "events" (with author/editor-generated event descriptions) under the six section headings identified in the Table of Contents.

Description : Bakke paints a fascinating picture of children's first real emergence as people against a backdrop of the ancient world.Using theological and social history research, Bakke compares Greco-Roman and Christian attitudes toward abortion and child prostitution, pedagogy and moral upbringing, and the involvement of children in liturgy and church life. He also assesses Christian attitudes toward children in the church's developing doctrinal commitments.Today, growing numbers of children are impoverished, exploited, abandoned, orphaned, or killed. Bakke's insightful work begins to untangle the roots of their complex plight.

Description : The Jesus of the four Gospels--and we have no knowledge of any other--appears mainly as a healer and a teacher--that is, as a healer of the soul. Three of the historically most certain facts about him were (1) his pacifism, (2) his feminism, and (3) that his women followers were the true founders of Christianity! The proof of these astounding claims you will find in the book.

Description : Diana Butler Bass, one of contemporary Christianity’s leading trend-spotters, exposes how the failings of the church today are giving rise to a new “spiritual but not religious” movement. Using evidence from the latest national polls and from her own cutting-edge research, Bass, the visionary author of A People’s History of Christianity, continues the conversation began in books like Brian D. McLaren’s A New Kind of Christianity and Harvey Cox’s The Future of Faith, examining the connections—and the divisions—between theology, practice, and community that Christians experience today. Bass’s clearly worded, powerful, and probing Christianity After Religion is required reading for anyone invested in the future of Christianity.

Description : Saul of Tarsus is one of the best known and most beloved figures of Christianity. This man, later known as St. Paul, set the tone for Christianity, including an emphasis on celibacy, the theory of divine grace and salvation, and the elimination of circumcision. It was Paul who wrote a large part of the New Testament, and who called it euangelion, "the gospel". There is another side of Paul, however, that has been little studied and that is his connection to the Roman military establishment and its intelligence arm. While other scholars and writers have suggested the idea that Paul was cooperating with the Romans, this is the first book-length study to document it in detail. By looking at the traditional story through a new lens, some of the thorniest questions and contradictions in Paul's life can be unravelled. How did he come to work for the Temple authorities who collaborated with the Romans? How was he able to escape from legal situations in which others would have been killed? Why were so many Jews trying to have Paul killed and to which sect did they belong? These and other mysteries will be solved as the authors follow Paul's career and his connections to Roman intelligence.

Description : While working on another writing project, an epiphany occurred which led to this book. Although I have read both John the Baptist's and Jesus' statements about repentance and the kingdom of heaven many times, I became intrigued that both used the same phrase to describe how one prepares to experience the spiritual blessings of that divine realm - "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." The longer I pondered its meaning, the more I understood the enormous challenge Jesus faced in transforming the historic religious attitudes of Israel. Repentance was not solely about ceasing prior bad behavior. Instead, its greater meaning involved turning away from self-righteousness under the ancient legal codes of Israel and turning to righteousness based on faith in the redemptive life and work of Jesus alone. In order to accomplish that, centuries of deeply entrenched religious legal standards, traditions of the elders, social standards and attitudes, and the very order of Jewish society would have to change. It would involve the greatest physical challenge and the greatest danger one could face, but the spiritual rewards would also be the greatest anyone could experience. Given the spiritual importance of repentance, it seemed logical that Jesus would have woven its meaning into all of His teaching. This inquiry led to a deeper study of the Sermon on the Mount and to the discovery of a treasure trove of spiritual truths regarding repentance. This project has been both spiritually and physically challenging. It has been the focus of my attention and interest for a long while and has involved many hours of study and writing. The challenge seemed endless at times, but it resulted in a broader and deeper understanding of this vital spiritual concept.

Description : In Volume One of Ernest Fortin: Collected Essays, the renowned theologian and political philosopher examines various facets of the unique encounter between biblical religion and Greek philosophy during the early Christian centuries and the Middle Ages. Fortin's aim is to uncover the crucial issues to which this encounter gave rise, such as the sometimes troubling but immensely fruitful tension between divine revelation and philosophic reason. The book includes sections on St. Augustine and the refounding of Christianity; the encounter between Jerusalem and Athens; the medieval roots of Christian education; and Dante and the politics of Christendom.
