The Early Church
First Century Christianity as Revealed in the New Testament
by Ferrell Jenkins

This material, which covers the work, organization, practices, and history of the New Testament church, is well suited for classroom or individual study.
The author of this book has been a gospel preacher since 1952 and served as chairman of the department of Biblical Studies at Florida College. He is firmly committed to the effort to restore New Testament Christianity in our age, and this book is the fruit of nearly half a century of study and devotion to these principles.
