Book Review: Dawn of Christianity

Dawn of Christianity by Robert Hutchinson


My Opinion:
This book spans the life of Christ through his birth, ministry, influence and cultural movement in the modern times. It is patterned after a historical documentary and with a narrative flare. There are detailed pictures as well as, timelines with corresponding scripture. The appendix contains a description of events and persons.
Overall, this book gives an accurate narrative history of Christ's ministry and would be a good study tool or reference.

From the Editor:
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.
