The Triumph of Christianity:How a Small Band of Outcasts Conquered an Empire

Bart Ehrman

The author of Misquoting Jesus (2005) turns his attention to a question that has long puzzled historians: how did Christianity evolve from the faith of a handful of peasants in rural Galilee to become a dominant Western religion in less than 400 years? Bart Ehrman explores why Christianity was nearly fated to become an obscure sect of Judaism, and how it has revolutionized art, music, literature, ethics, economics, and law.
