He sets the scene by painting a vivid picture of the context out of which this work emerged: from a community of early Christians with a fraught history.
You will glean fascinating insights from Fr. Burton as you plot the spread of Christianity from its roots among the Jewish followers of Jesus in Israel "to the ends of the earth." Fr.
