Product Description:

A sweeping history of the Christian faith from its foundational roots in Judaism in the first century to its current characteristics in the twenty-first century. With a stated goal of providing "a broad picture of Christian history . . . without allowing any single aspect to overwhelm the narrative as a whole," the thread is traced through religious and political rulers; through diverse cultures; and with a recognition that the true story of Christianity is "the beliefs, ideas and values that Christian faith instills in individual men and women." Fifty chapters (just over two per century) track the major traditions (Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Protestant) through their rising and waning as well as show Christianity's shift from being the core of western civilization to being "the most widespread and diverse of all religions, taking root in cultures very different from those in which it was born and in which it once flourished." 356 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

Publisher Description:

Hart traces the growth of the Church from Jesus' own life through to its massive impact throughout the world. Illuminates the traditions, beliefs and practices of over twenty centuries of Christianity worldwide.
