About this item

Here's an unflinching look at the lives and sacrifices of those first Christians who were given the task of spreading the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

Relying on ancient documents — as well as the latest archeological findings and scientific research — acclaimed author Mike Aquilina takes you on a journey through the Apostolic Age, bringing to life the dusty streets and crowded marketplaces through which Mary and the Apostles journeyed as they built a Church that lasts even to our day.

Here you'll discover the beliefs of the early Christians, what they taught about the Eucharist and the divinity of Christ, how their Church services resembled today's Mass, and how Rome became the spiritual center of Christianity

Read these pages, and you'll come to see that despite the best efforts of their enemies, the blood of the Apostles did not snuff out the Faith; it brought forth great saints whose holy deeds and brave examples gave the besieged Church a vigor that lasts even unto today.

The Apostles and Their Times will give you confidence that the Church is indeed Christ acting in the world and that no matter how ruthless her opponents, she will endure to the end of time.

Among other things, you'll learn:

Infused with great goodwill and kindness.
Mike Aquilina has the extraordinary gift of being able to write, while never diminishing his command of historical and theological knowledge, in a style accessible to a reader of any age. This book will surprise anyone who thinks he or she has a firm foundational knowledge of the Apostles or their times, for Mr. Aquilina frequently reveals facts and historical connections that leave the reader asking, "How come I've never heard that before?" This book is a delight to read.

Find out who the Apostles really were and what they did
For me this was an eye-opening introduction to the men who walked with Jesus and carried out his mission to build the Church after his Ascension. There was so much more to them than what we hear on Sunday and it was wonderfully told here, including the real story of Thomas, of whom much more can be said than that he doubted.

Inspiring
If you think the Apostles were full of heroes and early Church full of heroics, you'd be correct. But to think they were one dimensional, you'd be wrong. Very inspiring book.
