How can believers today express their commitment to Jesus in a way that is relevant and alluring? Ron Mahler reintroduces the early Church, whose people were so radical in every facet of their faith and ministry, as the ultimate example for Christians to emulate. The trail-blazing testimony of our pioneering Christian ancestors challenges us to imagine a time when faith and fellowship were not just about believing in certain doctrines and doing "Christian" things, but also about living like Jesus lived.
