Description

This book tells the story of Christianity from the Early Church to ecumenism. Written by a team of scholars, it spans 2000 years to give a history of Christianity for the general reader. The opening section traces events to 1800 and includes chapters on Eastern Christendom, Christianity and Islam, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, and missions overseas. The second, examining the impact of Christianity around the world, brings the story up to date, while the final part, considering questions of theology, conscience, and belief, provides a glimpse into the future of the faith.show more
