A History of Early Christianity

by Bart D. Ehrman

What are the answers to these questions?

Were the early Christians really hunted down and martyred, with repeated persecutions for an "illegal" religion forcing them to hide in the catacombs of Rome? Did the ancient Jews of Jesus' time always believe in a single, all-powerful God? How did breaking away from their Jewish roots make Christians more vulnerable in the Roman world? What were the actual roots of what we now think of as the distinctively Christian liturgical practices of baptism and the Eucharist?
