Publisher Comments:

The definitive text in early church history, Frend's The Rise of Christianity offers a vast, panoramic sweep of Christianity's first six centuries, from the dust of Palestine to the court of Justinian and the parting of Eastern and Western Christianity. With many maps, chronologies, and graphics, Frend's text is an engaging story but also an immensely learned and careful work of scholarship. Elegantly written. It is a marvelous reference work. It will become the standard church history of our time for scholar and novice alike.

Synopsis:

'A history of early Christianity like this one comes along only once in a generation. Only by reading this book can one appreciate how vast and disciplined is its scholarship, how thoughtful, how thoughtful its attention to both large historical currents and the little people and details that form the bed, and force the eddying, of history's great stream.'
