Format: Paperback
Jennifer A. Glancy (Professor of Religious Studies, LeMoyne College) presents Slavery in Early Christianity, a highly scholarly examination of the prevalence of slaves and slaveholders among early Christians, particularly in the Roman Empire. Chapters scrutinize how the social histories of emerging Christian churches had their rhetoric affected by the influence of slavery, the life experiences of slaves and what it meant to be a slave in the first Christian centuries. Of particular interest is the figure of the slave in the sayings of Jesus Christ, an aspect examined at length in historical and social as well as a religious context. A welcome addition to both university library and private religious studies collections.

Haven't finished this book, yet but I find the author's style to be lucid, her book well-researched and she pulls it all together to make it understandable to the layperson. One gets a picture of that time and the institution of slavery in context, and she explains how she arrived at her conclusions. A very interesting and readable book.
