Christianity has carried on down the centuries, and its doctrine has been regarded as unaffected by changes in cultural, intellectual, social and political background. But there is more to Christianity than this and, particularly over the last two hundred years, there has been a growing awareness about how much change and diversity there is within the religion. This is a rich and complex story involving key individuals, events, intellectual developments, wars, migrations, cultural and scientific innovations, all of which are connected with particular times and places. Art, architecture, literature and music are also part of this fascinating story.

The book is divided into separate chapters for each century, each of which contains an introduction. There is also additional information about the most important movements and developments in the unfolding story. It is beautifully presented with 12 maps, an 8 page color plate section, 40 line drawings and a comprehensive index.
