Description
In this powerful and persuasive work, Gregory Riley exposes the notion of one standard Christianity -- to which the various Christian traditions of the world claim fidelity -- as a myth. From the very beginning, writes the author, there was great diversity among those who identified themselves as followers of Jesus. Dozens of sects arose in different cities of the first-century Greco-Roman world, all claiming to be the religion of the risen Christ. Ultimately, these early, doctrinally diverse Christianities led to the diversity of the Church today.<P>In clear and elegant prose Riley demonstrates that authentic Christianity is inherently pluralistic and tolerant of diverse beliefs. An expert on the context in which Christianity arose, Riley maps out a whole new understanding of the early churches, and conveys a vital message for today about the true nature of Christian faith.
