Apostles: First Followers and Their Faith
From The Publisher:
The story of the first followers of Jesus Christ has been told and retold countless times. Do we really need to repeat it? The problem is that much of what has been written has come from authors who have filtered their conclusions through the traditions and teachings of a church farther and farther removed from the earliest believers. These authors have mostly downplayed the importance of understanding the original doctrine of the Church for today. Few have labored to fully understand the teachings and practice of the first followers in their first-century cultural setting and their deep connection to the Hebrew Scriptures. Thus there is a void in the existing literature.
