Wilken draws on a variety of sources to present ""pagan criticism'' of Christianity from the beginning of the early second century to the late fourth century. He relies on some Christian sourcesthe gospels, the letters of Paul, the works of Ignatius of Antioch and Clement of Romeand devotes a chapter each to the views of various Roman and Greek philosophers and statesmen. This is a ``fascinating'' book, PW wrote.
