The First Christian centuries: perspectives on the early church

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The value of this study lies not in providing a comprehensive narrative of the origins and growth of the early church. It lies in critically examining key historical issues in sustained conversation with contemporary scholarship and the ancient sources. McKechnie will be valued by both students and scholars of early Christianity as an intelligent and informed companion who offers repeated and valuable insights into this critical era of Christian beginnings.
