Now available in a compact, more convenient format, this book offers the same acclaimed text which first appeared in The Oxford Illustrated History of Christianity. Written by a team of expert scholars, this astonishingly comprehensive volume traces the history of Christianity from the Early Church to the present day exploring every aspect of the faith. The opening section takes events from the earliest Christian communities to 1800, and includes chapters on Eastern Christendom, Christianity and Islam, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, and the expansion of Christianity. The second section, covering the period from 1800 to the present day, is divided by geographical area and examines the impact of Christianity around the world from Britain and Europe, Africa, India, and the Far East. The final section, considering questions of theology, conscience, and belief, explores new images of the Christian community and provides a glimpse of the future of the faith. Authoritative and readable, The Oxford History of Christianity is essential for anyone interested in the enduring history of one of the world's most vibrant religious traditions.
