The Forgotten Creed: Christianity's Original Struggle against Bigotry, Slavery, & Sexism

The Forgotten Creed: Christianity's Original Struggle against Bigotry, Slavery, & Sexism
This ancient creed, based on Jesus's early teaching that his followers were all children of God, is quoted in Paul's letters although he did not embrace it. It says nothing about God or Christ or salvation, but its claims were about the whole human race, that there is no race, no class, or gender in the world of the Spirit.

This book explores the story of that first, forgotten creed, and the world of its begetting, in which foreigners were feared, slaves were human chattel, and men questioned whether women were really human after all. Into this world the followers of Jesus proclaimed: "You are all children of God. There is no Jew or Greek, no slave or free, no male and female, for you are all one. This book explores how Christianity became a Gentile religion, and the debates of that time about how human beings can overcome the divisions we create, and the possibility of solidarity beyond race, class and gender.
