Christianity and the Roman Empire from Nero to Theodosius
In this classic work Paul Allard asks, “Why did the Christians suffer two and a half centuries of suspicion and official repression?”
The history of the persecutions reminds us that the spread of Christianity took place against considerable opposition. In our own day, Christians face another kind of test in a world that is increasingly secularized. Allard’s book offers timely reminders of how early Christians maintained their identity as a minority in the midst of official suspicion.
