Awhile ago I read a review of a book that sounded very interesting. I *thought* I bookmarked it but I cannot find it for the life of me πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ.

The book was about how Christianity went from a fringe, despised religion to being the sole religion of the formerly pagan Roman Empire. It focussed particularly on how talented, zealous Christians removed themselves from the crumbling and corrupt status quo of the late Empire and built a religious infrastructure that would soon spread across Europe. It is somewhat of a case study of how small, determined groups can, against the odds, influence whole societies.

Does that ring any bells?!

I'm sorry, Ozquoll, there's no end of books on the history of the early church, but you haven't given me enough to go on there to be able to pinpoint a title.

Thanks QuisbySchmoo, I think it must be that first one you linked. If not, it’s covering the same ground and the reviews are fantastic - I’m looking forward to reading it! πŸ˜€
