Overview

Written by one of the world’s leading theologians and the author of numerous bestselling textbooks, this comprehensive textbook explores over two millennia of Christian history. Accessibly structured by historical period, and informed by the latest research, it goes beyond a simple denominational history in analyzing the impact of Christianity as a social, political, and intellectual phenomenon, as well as its legacy on art, architecture, and the natural sciences.

Tracing the development of all three branches of Christianity – Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox – and providing context to Christianity’s origins and its links to Judaism, the book adopts a truly global perspective. McGrath extends his focus beyond the West to explore the expansion of Christianity and related issues across Asia, Latin America, and Africa. Combined with coverage of theology, history, and culture, this global viewpoint will ensure Christian History: An Introduction will be a valuable addition to the field and to any student’s bookshelf.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This book, ideal for seminarians but also for the non-professional Christian, is an incredible resource for helping Christians understand where our faith comes from, how it has developed and spread and survived as long as it has. Ultimately, this book is a great picture of the story of God working to advance his kingdom in the midst of broken humanity." (Tom-farr.blogspot.com, 1 August 2013)
