How did Christianity conquer the ancient world?

By what means did a fringe personality cult, from the remote backwaters of ancient Palestine, convince millions of polytheistic Romans and Greeks to worship a dead Jew and then turn the Roman Empire into a strict theocracy?

This brave new secular documentary challenges the version of the story you probably heard in Sunday School and, with the help of expert biblical scholars and cutting edge animation, lays bare the astonishing facts as they appear in the New Testament itself. Early Christianity was far more complicated and interesting than most people, including Christians, understand.
