Johnson examines twelve crises that motivated the evolution of Christianity. In his survey of Church history, he chronicles the story from the first century, and the birth and adolescence of Christianity, to postmodernism, a feat which no other introduction can claim. His chapters examine the basic conflicts that gave permanent shape to Christian theology, and, to a lesser degree, church institutions.
"Marshall Johson presents a crisp and well-digested story imaginatively divided into 12 chapters, each describing a crisis that shaped the Church from birth and adolescence, through self-definition, persecution, and doctrinal debate, to Islam, science modernism, and postmodernism."--Sanford Lakoff "Church Times "
