Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

This outstanding textbook offers an original history of Christian thought, asking what it has meant over the centuries to participate in the religion of the “Word made flesh.”

The volume:

  • traces Christian ideas, conversations, experiences and practices from the first century through to the dawn of modernity at the end of the eighteenth century

  • presents an inclusive history, considering the critical roles of women and religious “others”– dissenting Christians, Jews, and Muslims – in shaping Christian thought

  • demonstrates the importance of liturgical and devotional exercises to developing Christian practice

  • treats words, images, music and architecture all as primary evidence in reconstructing past experiences of Christianity.

The accompanying CD Rom contains over one hundred and fifty visuals to support the theories and examples discussed throughout the volume and detailed information concerning the musical selections is given at the appropriate locations to facilitate their classroom use. This superb resource will be essential for all those wanting an inclusive, accessible, and stimulating introduction to the history of Christianity.
