A very enjoyable read. I thought it amazing that someone as intelligent and knowledgeable on the subject as Stark could write about the topic of the sociology of early Christianity in such a way as to make it understandable to me! It really was fun to read. It made the time period much more "real" to me to where I could actually imagine the people and their circumstances.

I was reading another book where this book was mentioned and in the same week I heard a speaker talking about early Christianity mention this book. Figured that was a good excuse to buy the book and read it. I wasn't disappointed!
