How, in just a few hundred years, did the body of Christ evolve from an a-political, non-violent, trans-religious Jesus movement, populated predominantly by Jewish Christ-followers but rapidly opening to Gentiles who also wanted to follow Christ into an organized, hierarchical religion, which embedded itself with the State, embraced “Just War,” and excommunicated its last surviving Jewish remnant? Howard answers this question with groundbreaking historical research and persuasive argument in Excommunicating the Faithful: Jewish Christianity in the Early Church, and makes clear the implications for today’s churches.
