Publisher Comments:

Christianity is a concise and readable survey of the history of Christianity from its beginnings in late antiquity, through Reformations in the West, to its present day globalization. Focusing particularly on the modern period, it provides a valuable introduction to contemporary Christian beliefs and practices and looks at the ways in which this diverse religion has adapted, and continues to adapt, to the challenges of the modern world. Written in an accessible and informative style, and assuming little or no prior knowledge on the part of the reader, this book gives a basic introduction to the faith—its history, beliefs, and practices. Provides valuable pedagogy, including: timeline; maps; glossary; list of sacred days/festivals; suggested reading; pronunciation guide; index; feature boxes focusing on some aspects of the arts; 11 black and white pictures and artworks. Readers interested in learning more about the world's religions.
