Product Description

The only way to move forward successfully is by learning from the past.

You hear it everyday: we’re globally connected like never before. Yes...and, no. Technology has made the world a much smaller place, but we’ve forgotten what we already know (cryptomnesia). We’ve forgotten that we’re not the first to experience globalization. The early church emerged in an age of mammoth road-building, exposing Roman citizens to new cultures, new commerce, new foods, new religions, and more. But it was exactly the right time for Christianity to thrive—as it is today.

“What makes this book so worth reading and discussing is the way our current religious reality in post-Christendom America is a repeat of what the earliest Christians experienced in the Roman Empire.  Relearning our past not only gives us courage; it gives us tools for confronting the present and living into a new future. …We have a hidden memory we desperately need to rediscover.  I believe the Holy Spirit is at work in our recovery from biblical, theological and historical amnesia.” –Bishop Mike Lowry, Fort Worth Episcopal Area, The United Methodist Church
