Product Description

For the non-specialist, Martin Marty traces the church's quest through twenty centuries for unity, sanctity, uni versality, and authentic witness. He delves into the dispar ity between the ideals of the church and historical reality in order to provide a brilliant, instructive, and fair statement of the history of Christianity from its founding to the present day. Marty's principle of narration revolves around the four historic notes of the Church: one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. In this second edition, revised and expanded, Marty has added an entirely new section entitled "Postscript and Prescript" in which he discusses the recent past and prospects. Fresh insights and revisions based on the most recent contemporary developments keep this volume abreast of the times, making it an up-to-date survey of the history of Christianity. Includes notes, index, and a chronological table of events up until 1950.
