A nice overview of the early Christian period. The best parts are those that reveal, as the title suggests, the "everyday" of people's lives and the back story of how the persecution of Christians began and why it was perpetuated for so long. Sommer also does a good job of dispelling the idea that the early centuries of Christianity are shrouded in mystery; he shows that there is ample historical documentation of the period and wades through it for the reader to draw out what there is to know.
