Summary

This book aims to introduce readers to the Christian tradition that has shaped the two millenia from the dawn of the Roman Empire to the present. It provides a diversifying discourse on the ways in which the church provides meaning to persons and peoples, explaining how some of the current problems of the modern church came to be. Special focus has been paid to the Jewish roots of Christianity; each section represents conventional breaks in the periodization of Christian history. It gives attention to the cultural manifestations of Christianity, including the art, music, and literature. For those readers interested in a history of Christianity that is unique, as it takes the voices of the laity and women seriously, and includes art and music as Christian cultural traditions.
