— [http://goo.gl/2nJ3mY] This is a book about the wide diversity of early Christianity and its sacred texts. Some of these texts came to be included in the New Testament._______________________Others came to be rejected, attacked, suppressed, and destroyed.

It may be difficult to imagine a religious phenomenon more diverse than modern-day Christianity. There are Roman Catholic missionaries in developing coun­tries who devote themselves to voluntary poverty for the sake of others, and evangelical televangelists who run twelve-step programs to ensure financial success. There are New England Presbyterians and Appalachian snake han­dlers. There are Greek Orthodox priests committed to the liturgical service of God, replete with set prayers, incantations, and incense, and fundamentalist preachers who view high-church liturgy as a demonic invention. There are liberal Methodist political activists intent on transforming society, and Pente­costals who think that society will soon come to a crashing halt with the return of Jesus. Many of these Christian groups, of course, refuse to consider other such groups Christian.

All this diversity of belief and practice, and the intolerance that occasion­ally results, makes it difficult to know whether we should think of Christian­ity as one thing or lots of things, whether we should speak of Christianity or Christianities.
