A major new introduction to the global history of Christianity, written by one of the world's leading theologians and author of numerous bestselling textbooks. * Provides a truly global review by exploring the development of Christianity and related issues in Asia, Latin America and Africa, and not just focusing on Western concerns * Spanning more than two millennia and combining elements of theology, history, and culture, it traces the development of all three branches of Christianity -- Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox -- providing context to Christianity's origins and its links to Judaism * Looks beyond denominational history at Christianity's impact on individuals, society, politics, and intellectual thought, as well as on art, architecture, and the natural sciences * Combines McGrath's acute historical sensibility with formidable organizational skill, breaking the material down into accessible, self-contained historical periods * Offers an accessible and student-oriented text, assuming little or no advance theological or historical knowledge on the part of the reader

"This book, ideal for seminarians but also for the non-professional Christian, is an incredible resource for helping Christians understand where our faith comes from, how it has developed and spread and survived as long as it has. Ultimately, this book is a great picture of the story of God working to advance his kingdom in the midst of broken humanity." ( Tom-farr.blogspot.com , 1 August 2013)
