Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Crossan shines new light on the theological and cultural contexts from which the Christian church arose.

10214 The Closing of the Western Mind; The Rise of Faith and the Fall of Reason
Charles Freeman
Vintage Books
ISBN 1-4000-3380-2
CH - Church History / CHF / Book
A radical and powerful reappraisal of the impact of Constantine’s adoption of Christianity on the later Roman world, and on the subsequent development both of Christianity and of Western civilization.

When the Emperor Contstantine converted to Christianity in 368 AD, he changed the course of European history in ways that continue to have repercussions to the present day. Adopting those aspects of the religion that suited his purposes, he turned Rome on a course from the relatively open, tolerant and pluralistic civilization of the Hellenistic world, towards a culture that was based on the rule of fixed authority, whether that of the Bible, or the writings of Ptolemy in astronomy and of Galen and Hippocrates in medicine. Only a thousand years later, with the advent of the Renaissance and the emergence of modern science, did Europe begin to free itself from the effects of Constantine's decision, yet the effects of his establishment of Christianity as a state religion remain with us, in many respects, today.
10213 St. Paul Versus St. Peter; A Tale of Two Missions
Michael Goulder
Westminster John Knox Press
ISBN 0-664-25561-2
CH - Church History / CHG / Book
Most Christians believe that there was essentially only one early church which was later imperiled by false teachings. The New Testament was the developing statement of this early church, and from it grew the whole structure of Christian belief. In this remarkable book, Michael Goulder sets out to disprove this commonly held theory.
