Book Review: Landmarks in the History of Early Christianity, by Kirsopp Lake
The following book review was written by a member of our congregation. The views presented here are
solely those of the reviewer and may or may not align with the views of other members.
It begins with a long introduction into the pagan religions that were extant at the time Christianity was founded or which had preceded the founding of Christianity. The author does not recognize the guidance from the Holy Spirit which the apostles had and assumes that they were influenced primarily by the social forces around them. I was very disappointed in this book, having read Eusebius’s book, History of Christianity as well as other church histories.
