Publisher Description

Christianity began with a handful of disciples following an itinerant preacher as he proclaimed the kingdom of God throughout the region of Palestine. Today, Christianity is the world’s predominant faith—a faith that has swept continents, crossed oceans, transformed cultures, and shaped the course of world events.

What is the history of Christianity? How did it spread from its grassroots beginnings to become a worldwide faith? Who are its luminaries—its leaders, theologians, thinkers, preachers, artists, and influencers—from its inception to today? What forms and expressions has it taken through the centuries? How has it influenced and been influenced by different times and cultures?

Full of lavish full-color photographs and illustrations, the Zondervan Handbook to the History of Christianity offers you a sweeping history of the Christian faith from the time of Jesus and the apostles till now. The early and later church fathers; Africa, the Middle East, and the Missions East; the Byzantine Empire; the High Middle Ages; the Reformation; Reason and Revival; Modern America and Oceania … seventeen sections cover all these and many more aspects of Christian history in vivid and engaging detail.

Features include:

  • Comprehensive, highly readable coverage of the history of Christianity by expert contributor
  • 42 feature articles on relevant and fascinating topics such as Origen, the Inquisition, Darwinism, African church music, the great Russian novelists, and witch hunts
  • 200 full-color photos and illustrations
  • Maps, charts, and timelines

    I did not realize the print would be so small. It is difficult to read. The quality is great and it is beautiful, but it won't be one I use a lot.

    Great pre-seminary basic instructive information for the lay pastor deacon or those wanting a fuller understanding of the church growth and its artifaces history both good and not so. Some of its ideology and the thinking of the time. Beautifully rendered with great art and a help for students looking for time period info and the thinking of those eras. Maintains continuity.

    The secondary issues this book notes in Christian history is fine, but when it comes to the primary issues (the incarnation [John 1:14; Phil. 2:6-8] and deity of Christ [John 8:24, 58], His virgin birth [Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:23], His substitutionary death and His PHYSICAL resurrection [Rom. 4:25; 5:8; 10:9-10; 1 Cor. 15]) the author leaves A LOT of room for doubt and speculation. These are essential Christian doctrines. Yet the author writes as if the history of Christianity is open to any various view. The publisher should be ashamed for publishing such a book. I would highly NOT recommend this book for anything but kindling.
