Description
One Jesus, Many Christs explains that Christianity has been doctrinally diverse from its inception, so we should not find it scandalous to have many different kinds of Christian churches today. Christianity, Riley boldly contends, was a diverse tent in its earliest days, with major differences of opinion about Jesus' divinity and bodily resurrection, the need to observe Jewish law, and so on.

Riley, who is an expert on the historical context in which Christianity arose, illuminates the Greco-Roman world of the early Christians, which was steeped in hero worship. Jesus was embraced as a compelling new hero one could follow into a whole new life of caring community and transcendent hope. Riley asserts that it was only after Christianity became the religion of the Empire that the myth of the Apostle's Creed and doctrinal orthodoxy began.
