Product Description

Told in easy-to-understand language with helpful timelines and selections from historical writings, this engaging new introduction will appeal especially to students with little or no experience in the study of religion.

A New History of Christianity provides a definitive overview of the many persons, p[laces, movements, and events necessary for the telling of our story, the story of the church. It is a story told within the complex contexts of larger world events and world cultures but defined and simplified by attention to those developments that have proven most influential. Knowing that the history of Christianity presents students with a daunting array of names and events, Hillerbrand focuses only on those that provide the best insights into Christianity's contribution to world culture, both past and present.
