Publisher's Description

2000 Years of Amazing Grace is an accessible and easy-reading history of Christianity that focuses on the essentials of the Christian message, centrally, salvation by grace. It presents a luminous and enthusiastic digest of vital Christian beliefs and an account of how Christianity evolved from Jesus to the present. It also features biographical sketches of key figures, extensive citation from founding documents, and discusses Christianity's relationship to other world religions today. What distinguishes this book from other overviews of Christianity is Paul Zahl's lively and accessible style of writing and his vigorous advocacy of orthodox Christian faith. His own personal commitment to Christianity is a guiding force in the book. He also readily acknowledges the ways in which Christians and Christian institutions have failed to live up to the founder's teachings and have distorted his message. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand Christianity's long history, and how that history has led to a thriving faith today.
