Understanding Early Christianity: 1st to 5th Centuries: An Introductory Atlas presents a colorful, accessible synopsis of the first 500 years of Christianity. This Bible atlas conveys the history of Christianity through copious maps, illustrations, and photographs, and emphasizes three main themes: theology and dogma, ethical and moral life, and the early phase of the growth of Christianity into a world religion.
