The celebrated French Academician, Henri Daniel-Rops, recreates the world that gave birth to Christianity. The people who lived in Palestine at the time of Christ become flesh and blood with occupations, families and homes. You will sympathize with them, like them or dislike them. Even the land with its particular kinds of birds singing and its particular flowers and crops growing in its soil are reconstructed to give a full understanding of these people and their turbulent times. Daniel-Rops also brings to light the political, economic, scientific and cultural currents of the period. The events that preceded and surrounded the coming of Christ and the spread of Christianity are illuminated with immense scholarship and moving description, giving a clear picture of Christ among his people and in his time.
