Early Christianities

Having read Bart Erhman's 'Lost Christianities' and wishing to learn more about the earliest Christians (and diverse range thereof), I was wondering if anybody could recommend any particularly useful resources, particularly online ones (but not restricted to).

 

Cheers

Paul,

 

A book about early Christianity that is very good is The Rise of Christianity by Rodney Stark. It is more historical than theological or biblical. Stark is a sociologist who specializes in religion. He explores early Christianity from a sociological point of view. Several years ago, I gave a copy to my pastor (PCUSA) and he said it was the best book he ever read about early Christianity (mine as well, but he had read much more than me).

Thanks guys,

 

Books have been added to my Wishlist for purchase as soon as I get through a few on my shelf, and that site Rivanna, has been bookmarked for further reading.

 

Cheers

Paul
