Pub. Date:
This richly illustrated book tells the story of Christianity from its origins to the present day. Written by a team of scholars, all authorities in their fields, it spans 2000 years of colourful incident to give a uniquely authoritative history of Christianity for the general reader.Every aspect of the faith is explored. The introduction discusses Christian interpretations of the historical process, and the links and tensions between religious and artistic inspiration. The first section runs from the earliest Christian communities to 1800, and includes chapters on EasternChristendom, Christianity and Islam, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, and the expansion of Christianity. The second section is divided by geographical area, and covers the period 1800 to the present day. There are special studies of Britain and Europe, North and South America, Africa, India andthe Far East, and the Orthodox Churches of Eastern Europe. The final section, `Christianity Today and Tomorrow' considers questions of Christian theology, conscience, and belief, and explores new images of the Christian community, ending with a glimpse of the future of the faith. Throughout, thebook reflects the changing world in which Christians have found themselves, and gives full weight to events and movements where the Christian response has been challenged and re-evaluated.There are over 350 illustrations, including 32 full colour plates, all specifically chosen to complement the broad-ranging text. The book also contains ten maps, a chronology, annotated guides to further reading, and a full index.Authoritative, comprehensive, and highly readable, this book captures the richness and vitality of Christian art and thought in a wide variety of cultures and times.
