The Childhood of Christianity
The Childhood of Christianity
by Etienne Trocme
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Growing pains, 9 Feb. 2015
Trocme's book - first published and translated in 1997 - is an excellent study of the first century of the Christian faith. His style is very readable and backed (of course) with impeccable scholarship. The part that I found most interesting was his account of the rise of rabbinical Judaism and his view that much of the animosity expressed in the Gospels and in Acts was not only due to Christian rejection of Judaism, but to post-Jamnai Judaism rejecting Christianity. The book recounts the end of childhood for Christianity: after about 90AD there was no longer a place for it in Judaism, and it had to stand on its own two feet.
My own view of the creation of the New Testament leans heavily on Paula Fredriksen (From Jesus to Christ, 1988/2000). Neither writer mentions any works by the other in their bibliographies, and their traditions are different, Fredriksen's being more North American, Trocme's more Francophone. Trocme does not always agree with Fredriksen's readings - but both are fascinating in their accounts of the contexts, politics, and dilemmas that the early Church faced. Definitely recommended.

An absolutely delightful book from its witty but unassuming title, a quotation from Larkin, right through to the end. The author is a terrific scholar full of insights into the Gospels and the Epistles (and into Mediterranean history and life in the first century AD), but even more importantly a warm and funny human being. I'm so glad to have stumbled across it in the library and knew at once that I had to have a copy of my own.

This review is from: The Devil's Dictionary (Paperback)
Dry, witty, sour. Full of the kind of quotes you want for your after-dinner speech. Some less funny than others, but worth it nonetheless.
