Publisher's Description

The Zondervan Essential Companion to Christian History Video Study gives you what it promises: the essentials. This highly informative, broad-ranging study provides vital facts on the growth and impact of Christianity from the apostles to the present day not only in the Western world but also globally, including the development of Eastern Orthodox and Armenian Christianity, as well as Christianity in Latin America, Southeast Asia, the Baltic and Slavic states, and India. The study is organized by century, going through the major events, ideas, and personalities that have shaped Christian history around the world.

Along with its accompanying book, Zondervan Essential Companion to Christian History, this video study by author and scholar Stephen Backhouse covers:

  • The main threads and issues running through each century of Christian history
  • Explanations of key historical developments
  • Thematic connections between centuries
  • Focused looks at key persons, ideas, and events

The final session, devoted to the present century, identifies key themes that the Christian church is presently dealing with and suggests future issues. Useful for students and lay learners alike, the Zondervan Essential Companion to Christian History Video Study will help viewers to grasp the global, multifaceted story of Christians.
