This book is a series of essays by BYU professors. Excellent up to date inforation, recent findings, covering not just the apostles but the Church as a whole and how the apostasy came about. I was amazed to learn the early Christian Church was much bigger than I thought and that persecution was only a minor reason for it's demise. Surprised to read specifics of the apostasy in the letters of Paul and others. Great detail on what the early church was like, worldly temptations, and influende of Ch ...more

Very solid collection of essays relating to the New Testament and the first and second century churches. I actually wasn't expecting as much post-NT content as there was, and I learned quite a bit from that material.

These types of collections have been a mainstay of LDS religious scholarship, rather than one full book written by an individual, and usually the articles are a mixed bag...some great, some lousy, and several off-topic that appear to have been published as a result of a lost bet by

Ok, I'm not gonna talk about the book for a minute- but the artwork on the cover.

It's an incredibly striking painting. I absolutely adore it.

I'm named for Saint Stephen (though spelled different because my mother was annoyed by all the English people who insisted to her that Americans spell it wrong) and have always enjoyed his story of diligence in the face of overwhelming danger. He was martyred yet faced his fate without fear.

This art manages to encapsulate all of this.

The book is brillia

Doing some research for Sunday School. Learned a lot of stuff. The Gospels weren't written until 30 + years after the death of Christ. Paul was an apostle, one of the twelve, but no one knows exactly when he was ordained. The church organization in the first century A.D. was very similar to the church organization in our dispensation. Etc. Etc.

Excellent essays giving insight and background while studying the New Testament epistles. I especially enjoyed the writings on how the apostasy happened so soon after Christ established His gospel on earth.
