Summary

Written by experienced scholars in the field, this fascinating survey provides a well-rounded introduction to the history of Christianity. It shows how Christianity emerged from its original Jewish context and developed into a worldwide religion.

Presents analyses from contributing scholars who are experts in specific facets of developing Christianity.

Provides detailed evidence of the influence of Greco-Roman and Jewish religious concepts and religious movements on the origins of Christianity, enabling students to perceive both continuities and differences between early Christianity and the wider socio-cultural setting out of which it came (Kee and Albu). Considers the structuring of the church conceptually and organizationally in Europe (Lindberg). Discusses Christianity's spread and growth in America (Frost), and throughout the world (Robert).

Discusses the profound impact of the culture of the later Roman and medieval world on the development of Christian doctrine and intellectual traditions.

Sheds light on the correlation between developing Christianity and the conceptual and philosophical traditions of Western culture.

Helps students understand the reasons for the divisions between Catholic and Protestant traditions, and the appearance of other independent forms of Christianity.

Explores how Christianity has taken such diverse forms in recent centuries.

NEW--Places greater emphasis on the development of Christianity in western Europe and in America in light of the cultural and social developments.

NEW--Expands coverage of the development of the church in the non-western world.

NEW--Includes deeper discussions of social issues such as poverty and welfare, perspectives and relations with women, Jews, and other religions.
