Description

The “marvelous” (Reza Aslan, bestselling writer of Zealot), New York Times bestselling story of how Christianity was the dominant religion within the West.

How did a religion whose first believers were twenty or so illiterate day laborers in a remote a part of the empire was the official religion of Rome, converting some thirty million people in just four centuries? In The Triumph of Christianity, early Christian historian Bart D. Ehrman weaves the rigorously-researched answer to this query “into a vivid, nuanced, and enormously readable narrative” (Elaine Pagels, National Book Award-winning writer of The Gnostic Gospels), showing how a handful of charismatic characters used a brilliant social strategy and an impossible to resist message to win over hearts and minds separately.

This “humane, thoughtful and intelligent” book (The New York Times Book Review) upends the best way we take into accounts the single most vital cultural transformation our world has ever seen—one that revolutionized art, music, literature, philosophy, ethics, economics, and law.
