This is a 1957 account of the rise and development of the Christian Church during the first two centuries after the Crucifixion. The events are set down in the order in which they happened, giving a clear picture of the establishment, progress, sufferings and survival of the new faith. It focuses special attention on the men who decisively affected its history. Archbishop Carrington does not offer this book as a conventional history for the scholar. It is a personal view, and it is based on the conviction that the early writers accurately recorded events, unless proved otherwise. This second volume examines the establishment of the Church. There are over 100 photographs on 64 plates, seven maps, genealogical and chronological tables, and reading lists.
