Overview

After the Reformation, Christians found themselves living amidst wars of religion, Enlightenment, and colonization. The conflictive and fast-changing scene in which Christians of all allegiances were thrown yielded vast and distinct new challenges and venues to ordinary Christians. The spread of Christianity to lands outside Europe and the Middle East, the new pluralism within Christianity, the incredible transformation of the Americas and of Christianity there-all these provoked new relations among Protestants and Catholics, women and men, master and slave. In this volume, the way in which lived Christianity and its practices were altered by these global changes is probed by an illustrious group of scholars led by distinguished historian Amanda Porterfield. With illustrations, bibliographies, and a color gallery, this volume engagingly highlights how the local daily lives of Christians creatively and often surprisingly intersected with the global forces we know as modernity.
