In this abridged version of his popular history, Gonzalez retains the essential elements of his earlier three volumes. Displaying his grasp of overarching themes as well as his enthusiasm for the subject, it traces Christian thought from the birth of Christ and the early church through the Middle Ages to 21st-century postmodernity.
In this revised and updated version of his popular history, Justo González retains the essential elements of his earlier three volumes as he describes the central figures and debates leading to the Councils of Nicea and Chalcedon. Then he moves to Augustine and shows how Christianity evolved and was understood in the Latin West and Byzantine East during the Middle Ages. Finally, he introduces the towering theological leaders of the Reformation and continues to trace the development of Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox Christianities through modernity in the twentieth century to postmodernity in the twenty-first.
Justo L. González has taught at the Evangelical Seminary of Puerto Rico and Candler School of Theology, Emory University. He is the author of many books, including Church History: An Essential Guide and To All Nations From All Nations, both published by Abingdon Press.
