Episode 28 – Interview With Roman Montero on Early Christian Communism

History of ChristianityThe book of Acts describes a church in which the members held all things in common. But how seriously should we take those passages? How common was that practice? And how do we interpret those passages in light of modern experiences of communism?

In this episode, I talk to Roman Montero, author of All Things in Common: The Economic Practices of the Early Christians. Roman has researched this topic extensively and places the passages in Acts in both the Greek and Jewish context.
