Many have an uneasy feeling that somethingâ€™s wrong with organized religion. They eye the Christian church with deep suspicion, and feel betrayed by news they hear about religion throughout the world. Are they right? Did something go wrong at the dawn of Christianity? Did the marriage of church and state in the 4th century compromise the original message of Christ? What would modern Christianity look like if Constantine had never lived?
In this book, Pastor Shawn Boonstra delves into the 1,200 years between the merger of the Christian church with Roman power, and the beginning of Martin Lutherâ€™s Reformation. Discover a remnant tribe of Barbarians who find Christ and grow their faith outside the confines of religious tradition, depending on the Bible alone. How they lived might surprise you.
