- Ranges from the missionary journeys of the apostles to the tele-evangelism of the twenty-first century.
- Demonstrates how the Christian community received and forged its identity from its development of the Bible to the present day.
- Covers topics fundamental to understanding the course of Western Christianity, including the growth of the papacy, heresy and schism, reformation and counter-reformation.
- Includes an introduction to the historiography of Christianity, a note on the problems of periodization, an appendix on theological terms, and a useful bibliography.
- An authoritative yet succinct history, written to appeal to a general audience as well as students of the history of Christianity.
- Written by internationally regarded theologian, Carter Lindberg, who is the author of numerous titles on theology and Church history.
"This is a wonderful book: accessible, concise, clearly written, and thoroughly absorbing. Lindberg has chosen to present the Christian tradition through the history of its principal ideas, but these ideas are grounded in the flesh-and-blood reality of persons, their struggles for faith and for power, and the social and political worlds they inhabited. Reflecting the author’s erudition and wit, this cogent distillation of a complex past will serve beginners as an ideal introduction and old hands as a thought-provoking synthesis." Christopher Elwood, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
