Christianity is a worldwide phenomenon, with millions of people across the globe practicing it, and paying fastidious attention to the pages of the Bible.
It wasn't always that way, however, as journalist Peter Jennings illustrates in this fascinating exploration of early Christian beliefs. The teachings of Christianity can be traced back to Jesus and Paul, who set down some of the fundamental beliefs in their brief tenure on the planet.
Focusing largely on Paul, Jennings shows how he set the religion apart from Judaism, the possible negative effects he had, and how he interacted with Jesus and his family. It all adds up to a fascinating piece of history that is both revealing and highly educational.
