Lion Histories is a major series aimed at those who are seeking accessible introductions to key periods, people and themes in Christian history. The books in the series are colour illustrated throughout. The Expansion of Christianity tells how the Christian faith spread from its beginnings in first century Palestine to become the largest religion in the modern world. Starting with the first missionary journeys to places such as Antioch, Ephesus, Philippi, Corinth, Athens and North Africa, Timothy Yates shows how Christianity has expanded into each continent. He also assesses how missionary activity changed from the twentieth century onwards with indigenous churches taking up the task.
