From the Publisher"[T]here are several aspects of this work that distinguish it and the careful collection development librarian would do well to consider them….Each chapter is divided into short sections for easy comprehension. There is a chronology at the front of the book, a series of short biographical sketches of important figures at the end of the text, selections from relevant primary sources that are easily citable, and an annotated bibliography….This book is very well written and is recommended for academic libraries that support programs in Classical History and/or Classical Languages."

"There are many attractive features that make this text an ideal supplement to a course covering the origins of Christianity: the text is well supplemented by photographs; each chapter is divided into short sections, which fosters comprehension; there is a chronology at the beginning of the book; there are a number of short biographical sketches of important figures at the end of the text; there are selections from primary sources; and there is an annotated bibliography. And she does all that in 209 pages! All in all, this is a worthy text for introductory religion courses."
