Product Description

Christianity is the most global of all religions. However, most books on the subject fail to do justice to the history of Christianity outside Europe and North America. This prodigious work provides the first genuinely global one-volume study of the rise, development and impact of the Christian faith.
Written by an international team of specialists, this comprehensive volume covers the full breadth of Christian history while also taking seriously the geographical diversity of the story: extensive chapters cover North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, India, China, and its neighbors, and Austrailia and the Pacific. Though unified in scope, these chapters each focus on what matters most in the specific time and place covered, ensuring that readers are introduced to the major themes-social, theological, political, and cultural-that together constitute Christianity's role in world history.

Ideally suited for classroom study as well as for independent reading, A World History of Christianity will serve as the definitive study of church history for the coming generation worldwide.

    Though this work is a bit dry, as I expected, it gives an excellent perspective of the history of Christianity as a movement. It is full of primary source material, and gives great depth as a supplement to a Church History course book.
