When studying the history of the Church, we tend to jump from the apostolic era right to the third century and beyond, where theological controversies were taking shape and ecumenical councils were being called. What about the second century? Was anything significant happening then? Michael Kruger has written Christianity at the Crossroads: How the Second Century Shaped the Future of the Church to provide valuable insight. Who would have imagined that--amid theological and cultural transitions, and much political instability--this time period would actually serve to solidify the Church!
