Overview

This 1897 review covers a history of Christian origins and Jewish and Christian literature to the end of the second century. Witness the rise of Nero, the fall of Jerusalem, the accession of a new faith, the Gnostics, the flight to the catacombs, and more. Gould says of the volume, “I have penetrated the dark chamber [of the fallible authorship of the Old Testament], and at least left the door ajar by which that influential person, the General Reader, may enter.”

Meet the Author

Frederick James Gould (1855-1938) was an English educator. As a teenager, he thought he heard heavenly voices, but later began to doubt his Anglican faith. A champion of the 1880s Secularist movement, he emphasized the Bible’s ethical teachings over its supernatural aspects. As a humanist he campaigned for the League of Nations and world peace. His works include On the Threshold of Sex (1909) and The Life-Story of a Humanist (1923).
