   schema:description "Christianity was born nearly 2000 years ago in ancient Palestine. It has shaped the course of human history. Yet historians still cannot say how it really began. How did a 1st-century preacher called Jesus manage to spark a new religion? How did Christianity take off so quickly, so convincingly, after the death of Jesus? The answer is as provocative and controversial as it is convincing, and it will shed new light on the historical record of Christianity's birth. Focusing on archaeological sources, reinterpreting well-known Biblical passages, and mixing historical detective work with cutting-edge scientific research, de Wesselow takes readers on an eye-opening and profound journey that promises to turn upside-down our understanding of the last two thousand years.--Publisher."@en ;
