Overview

As the world's largest and most widespread religion, Christianity impacts the lives of believers and nonbelievers alike. Its calendar has become the one used internationally. Its history has profoundly shaped Europe and the United States, and its future growth is projected to take place primarily in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. This book introduces the reader to Orthodox, Catholic, Baptist, Anglican, Lutheran, Reformed, Presbyterian, Methodist, Pentecostal, and evangelical Christians. It discusses the life of Jesus of Nazareth, and the writings of Paul, Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John. Christian beliefs, practices, culture, history, holidays, and the future of Christianity are highlighted. Professor of religion Ann Marie B. Bahr presents Christianity as a global faith that will continue to be the world's largest religion well into the foreseeable future.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-These titles discuss the foundations, scriptures, buildings, cultural expressions, holidays, and life experiences of their respective religions. Judaism suffers from serious repetition and redundancy. The chapter on cultural expressions is ridiculously superficial and focuses on the U.S., while over half the color reproductions are by Christian artists. The lack of visuals is a major drawback in the chapter on synagogue worship, which cries out for accompanying photos and diagrams. Christianity is poorly written: complex, difficult to follow, ponderous, and often irrelevant. There are major omissions, including marriage and death; B.C. and A.D. (despite two sections on dates and calendars); biblical books and the meaning of the Bible and New Testament; and religions out of the mainstream. Worst of all, rather than writing clearly to readers of various (or no) religious backgrounds, Bahr presumes a basic understanding of Christianity, thus defeating the series' educational objectives. Both books have a few charts; otherwise, the only illustrations are in a seven-page section of color photos depicting art and architecture. There are no glossaries, which is a major problem in Christianity (Judaism does a better job of interpreting things in context). Neither book indicates the scriptural translation being used or explains scriptural references (book, chapter, verse). Stick with Stephen Brown's Protestantism and Catholicism & Orthodox Christianity and Martha Morrison and Stephen Brown's Judaism (all 2002, Facts On File) instead of these volumes; while not perfect, they're concise and thorough.-Ann W. Moore, Schenectady County Public Library, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
