Publisher's Summary

Drawing upon the most recent discoveries and scholarship in archaeology and the first-century Near East, The Dawn of Christianity reveals how a beleaguered group of followers of a crucified rabbi became the founders of a world-changing faith.

How did Christianity truly come to be? Where did this worldwide faith come from? The Dawn of Christianity tells the story of how the first followers of Jesus survived the terror and despair of witnessing the one they knew to be the messiah - God's agent for the salvation of the world - suddenly arrested, tried, and executed. Soon after Jesus' death, his relatives and closest followers began hearing reports that Jesus was alive again - reports that even his most loyal disciples at first refused to believe.

Using the most recent studies by top Christian and secular scholars, Robert Hutchinson, known for his popular books on Christianity and biblical studies, reconstructs all of the known accounts of these early resurrection appearances and follows the witnesses to the resurrection as they experience brutal persecution at the hands of zealots such as Saul of Tarsus and then become committed evangelists to the major population centers in Antioch, Damascus, Rome, and Athens - and ultimately across the world. A riveting thriller of the most improbable history-changing movement imaginable, The Dawn of Christianity brings to life the compelling story of the birth of Christianity.
