In A Political History of Early Christianity Allen Brent examines early Christianity and its triumph in Roman Empire. Starting with the description of the apocalyptic movement of the earliest form of Roman [Markan] Christianity, Brent argues that for Christianity to triumph, it was necessary to replace a radical project of 'root and branch' transformation of present society with one that could appeal to a wider constituency influenced by Graeco-Raman views of divine political order.
