The Way

“Throughout the first five centuries [of Christianity] people understood Christianity primarily as a way of life in the present, not as a doctrinal system, esoteric belief, or promise of eternal salvation. By followers enacting Jesus’s teachings, Christianity changed and improved the lives of its adherents and served as a practical spiritual pathway.”

~Diana Butler Bass in A People’s History of Christianity
