Yale University Press Christianizing the Roman Empire: A.D. 100-400

How did the early Christian church manage to win its dominant place in the Roman world? In his newest book, an eminent historian of ancient Rome examines this question from a secular-rather than an ecclesiastical-viewpoint. MacMullen's provocative conclusion is that mass conversions to Christianity were based more on the appeal of miracle or the opportunity for worldly advantages then simply on a 'rising tide of Christian piety.'

An excellent look at the early church and its means of reaching people right after the time of the first apostles. From the viewpoint of a respected historian, not necessarily from 'the church'. A very valuable contribution.
