It's the story of the first year of Christianity, told by scholars whose job it is, apparently, to read the New Testament and reconstruct the historical facts from it. Most of them are religious scholars (Catholics, Protestants, Jews), and there are a few historians too.

The most fascinating part, to me, is the inconsistencies, contradictions and silences in the text, and what that suggests to us about the political struggles within the Christian communities. I love it
$89.99 at Amazon, and they don't have it as a digital rental. I may wait on this one, but thanks!
