Product Description

From past to present, this book takes the reader on a journey examining the unique social and cultural aspects influence in Christian history. With a variety of experts providing different slants, this unusual work has been updated to expand coverage of the non-Western world; place a deeper emphasis on such modern social and political issues as poverty, women, Jews, and other religions; plus highlight the cultural milieu's impact. This book aims to enable the reader to perceive how Christianity emerged from its original Jewish context and developed into a worldwide religion through engagement with the social and cultural dimensions of the world contemporary with its origins and evolution. The writers chosen to produce this work represent scholars whose academic skills embody such a contextual approach to their respective fields of specialization, ranging from knowlege of the Greco-Roman setting in which Christianity arose and spread across the Roman World (Kee and Albu) to the structuring of the church conceptually and origizationally in Europe (Lindberg), and to its spread and growth in America (Frost) and then throughout the world (Robert).
