Winner of the 2018 TGC Book Award for History and Biography

"A masterful account of the church in the second century, this book skillfully describes Christianity's movement into the wider pagan world and provides insight into the development of doctrine, formation of the canon, and Christian worship and practices. With an excellent summary of contemporary research on the second-century church, Christianity at the Crossroads could also be a manual for the church of the 21st century."

- Ivan Mesa, https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/2018-tgc-book-awards/

While scholars have long regarded the second century as one of the most decisive stages in the history of Christianity, there are no introductory surveys devoted solely to this critical period. This book fills this gap by providing an accessible and informative look at the complex and foundational issues faced by an infant church still trying to determine its identity. These issues included battles over heresy and orthodoxy, the development of the canon, the transmission of the Christian scriptures, and more. The church's response to these issues not only determined its survival, but it determined the kind of Church it would be for generations to come.
