From the Publisher
"Many beautiful color plates! Well-written text by outstanding scholars. Wide-ranging and well-organized both chronologically and geographically."—Bruce B. Miller II, Biblical Institute for Leadership Development

"An excellent history with superb illustrations."—Fred Berthold, Jr., Dartmouth College

"Wonderful—what is needed. A strong work calling upon sight in the learning of Christian history."—Catherine A. Kapikian, Wesley Theological Seminary

"A refreshing addition to the field of Christian history because it is comprehensive and international. The ecumenical dimension is greatly appreciated."—Horace O. Russell, Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"An impeccably illustrated volume with comprehensive essays on key aspects of the history of Christianity by international experts, this volume is welcome for students of Christian history or the history of religions. Especially helpful is that there are as many essays concerning 1800 and beyond as pre-1800."—Michael J. McNally, St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary
