After Jesus: The Triumph of Christianity

After Jesus: The Triumph of Christianity


It's an amazing tale - how the movement to follow Jesus survived, grew, and in the end captured the very soul of the mighty Roman Empire. Really two books in one, After Jesus tells the dramatic story of early Christians and of the times in which they lived.
Follow Paul and the other Apostles as they carry the word of Jesus throughout the known world; see what it was like to live in Jerusalem, Corinth, Alexandria, and other centers of early Christianity; witness persecutions, martyrdoms, and church ransackings that seemed only to fuel the fire of faith; observe the intrigues of imperial Rome and its slow decline into economic ruin and chaos; listen in on debates that nearly split the church just as it was becoming a respected power.
Thrillingly told and beautifully illustrated, After Jesus brings you face to face with the men and women who lived during the years from Jesus' death until A.D. 600.
Stunning reconstructions put you on the scene of such dramatic events as the fall of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 and the conversion of Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus; glorious photographs - more than 300 of them - show you the lives and aspirations of people in these stories through paintings, sculptures, and articles used in their rituals and daily lives; fascinating maps depict the spread of Christianity and the movements of the barbarians who helped hasten the fall of Rome; intriguing charts document such key events as the assembling of the New Testament; beautiful art portfolios bring you stirring paintings from the Roman catacombs, treasures of the Byzantine era, and finely crafted artifacts of the pagans.
Easy to read, awe-inspiring to contemplate, After Jesus is a book your whole family will turn to again and again.
