Defending First-Century Faith: Christian Witness in the New Testament

158 pages2 hours


What is the gospel? And how was its first preached--and defended? Opposition of many kinds--religious, political, and cultural--met the early Christians in their eagerness to tell the world about Jesus Christ. The kinds of opposition they faced still exist in new guises and we can learn much from the sensitive way the apostles tackled them. While adapting their approach, the early Christians never watered down their message. "The Kingdom of God calls loudly for such men and women today," writes the author. Defending First-Century Faith is clear, concise, and deeply perceptive. It is factual, fresh, and inspiring and written by the most outstanding evangelical scholar in Britain in the second half of the twentieth century.
