Inhaltsangabe: The `parting of the ways' or the process by which Christians saw themselves as an independent (from Judaism) and distinct community, has been defined in rather woolly ideological terms by many New Testament scholars. Stephen Spence argues that what we should address is the question of when this took place, trying to find a location and time. His study is based on literary and historical evidence relating to the Chruch of Rome which is taken as a case study, not because it is wholly representative, but because the source material provides `snap-shots' of time in which to trace religious shifts in the Christian community. Spence's discussion draws significantly on the work of the North American sociologist Rodney Stark to aid definition of `sect' and `cult' for example and to bring sociological issues to bear on the development of the Church of Rome.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This book seeks to inject into the general discussion of the Parting of the Ways of Judaism and Christianity the social realities of the separation of a particular Christian community and a particular Jewish community. By drawing upon the literary and the historical data available concerning the church in Rome, Spence seeks to discover when and how Christians came to see themselves as an identifiably distinct community. His findings will surprise those who see the Parting of the Ways as a slow process. He argues that although the parting was early, it was not without its complications. Drawing upon the work of Rodney Stark, a sociologist of religion, Spence suggests that within the church in Rome there was a struggle between those who saw the church as a Jewish sect and those who saw the church as a Roman cult - a struggle already underway when the Apostle Paul wrote Romans. This struggle, however, was not an even one, because it was the cultists, those for whom the church s primary social location was the pagans of Rome, who held the positions of power over the numerically smaller sectarians who sought to maintain the church s primary identity as a Jewish sect acceptable within the synagogues of Rome.
