The Dawn of Christianity: How God Used Simple Fishermen, Soldiers, and Prostitutes to Transform the World by Robert J. Hutchinson is a truly fascinating book that explores the spread of the gospel message from a historical and narrative perspective.
I really like how it combines Scripture with history, archaeology and recent discoveries related to biblical events.
I’m sure that this book is likely to be hit-or-miss. It will greatly appeal to others and disinterest others. I approached this book from the perspective of learning and discovering new things about the ministry of Jesus Christ and how His teachings impacted His disciples and the world. From that perspective, it definitely delivered for me.
I enjoyed the illustrations provided throughout the journey to help really immerse readers in the times and the expansive list of sources used to weave the narrative of the main text. That enables readers to accept, reject or further certain information that is presented, as they choose.
Overall, I found this book very interesting and recommend it to anyone who is open to experiencing the journey of Jesus Christ while He was on the earth from a unique, historical and factual perspective.
If you would like to learn more, you can check the book out on Amazon.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.
