Product Description

Most readers of this book will find themselves on foreign ground. In the first volume of this series, they had been at home. They knew the players and they knew the roles they played because the first book mostly furnished a historical background for the New Testament.

This is an excellent book that I would recommend to anyone who wants to study Christian history and heritage. It provides a very detailed look into historic events long since forgotten and left out of high school and college history.

Volume two of The Christians - Their First Two Thousand Years Nov. 29 2010
By PattiR - Published on Amazon.com
The apostle John headlines the first chapter of A Pinch of Incense, which begins in A.D. 70 with the fall of Jerusalem. The political and cultural settings of the Roman Empire and its shaping of Christianity (until A.D. 250) are expounded upon in 10 chapters, each with illuminating photos, artwork, maps and explanations. Familiar names of history emerge in a stream of those who either opposed or accepted the message overtaking the world. Domitian, Ignatius, Justin, Tertullian and Origen are only a few that fill the pages of Volume two of The Christians - Their First Two Thousand Years.

Fantastic! June 16 2013

Where does "a pinch of incense" come from? The Romans encouraged Christians to just offer a pinch of incense to the emperor and then they wouldn't be put to death. Some did offer the incense and saved their lives, most refused. This book—along with its companion volumes—offer the best popular level introduction to Christian history I've ever read. Beautiful volumes. Well written.

Really Interesting. It's pretty dense and will take a while to work through.
