Eddie Adams on the Meeting Places of Early Christians

Larry Hurtado has posted a helpful summary of what looks like an important book from Eddie Adams – The Earliest Christian Meeting Places: Almost Exclusively Houses? (London: Bloomsbury, 2013).

‘For some time now, the general view has been that earliest Christians met (e.g., for group worship) in houses, at least mainly. In a newly-published study, Dr. Edward Adams (Kings College London) queries this, contending that the evidence for this view isn’t as solid and consistent as commonly thought, and that the extant evidence suggests instead a variety of settings.’
