DVD, 2009, 3 hrs
Borrowed Items Ship free with Membership
The early church was growing rapidly. For three hundred years, despite discrimination and persecution, people took the risky step of being baptized and entering into the life of an exciting but despised religious minority. What was it that attracted people to become Christians? How did the Christians share their message with others? How did worship make Christianity attractive? Did the emergence of emperor Constantine in the early fourth century change things?

In this DVD, produced for Youth With a Mission in England, Alan Kreider, from Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS), works with YWAM students to answer these questions in six 30-minute presentations. Together, without rehearsal, they look at visuals of early Christian life and read the writings of early Christians. Some of the sessions are in preparation for the Reconciliation Walk to the Middle East in repentence for the Crusades. Through this, Kreider leads the students in a conversation with the early Christians, gaining relevant clues about the ways Christians can live and share the Good News today.
