This book provides a remarkably compact and readable survey of Christianity. From basic religious concepts the authors go on to explore notions of sacred time and space and the distinctive attributes of Christian worship. They consider in turn the person and story of Jesus, the role of the Bible, the history of the early church, the growth of denominations, and basics of Christian theology. Along with suggestions for further reading, a glossary and an index, each chapter includes sidebars and questions for class discussion or personal reflection. Introducing Christianity offers a basic text for religious studies courses with a diverse student body as well as courses in religious history and world religions.
