This work provides a survey of the history of the earliest Christian church in the period up to the fall of Jerusalem. It concentrates on: the figure of Paul; judicious and critical use of information in the Book of Acts; Judaizing versions of Christianity; and the Johannine tradition. The approach steers a middle way between an over-simplified account which fails to warn students where scholarly opinion is divided, and an in-depth academic study which attempts to document and discuss every hypothesis. Wedderburn focuses on aspects of central importance: the changing shape of church life and developing Christianity in relation to the Roman Empire and to Judaism. This book seeks to draw together and make more readily accessible many new insights gained from an enormous range of recent scholarly studies in German and English, and places them in the context of a more general account.
THIS SCHMUL PUBLISHING CO. EDITION IS NOT A SCANNED FACSIMILE OF A USED BOOK. It has been carefully typeset and proofread for accuracy and for easier reading by today's readers. Consequently there are no odd characters or missing text. Lays bare the steps by which many a believer has collapsed under the weight of temptation or persecution. Using biblical examples such as Lot and Peter, the author, who knew the great Charles G. Finney, sympathetically shows how to avoid falling into the traps of the World, proclaiming hope for forgiveness and a welcome back to the loving arms of the Heavenly Father. Foreword by the Salvation Army's Catherine Booth. (Note: This edition in larger type replaces previous ISBN 10: 0-88019-472-3/ISBN 13: 978-0-88019-472-3.)
A Devotional based on the Ten Commandments that will help lead discussions on the possibility of Christians living today's society while following Gods' Laws. A wonderful Devotional for youth groups; young adults; and new Christians. Also a great study guide for mature believers looking for a new look at a part of Christianity they have taken for granted.
