A World History of Christianity
Edited by by Adrian Hastings
From The Publisher:
Christianity is the most global of all religions. However, most books on the subject fail to do justice to the history of Christianity outside Europe and North America. This prodigious work provides the first genuinely global one-volume study of the rise, development, and impact of the Christian faith. Ideally suited for classroom study as well as for independent reading, this volume will serve as the definitive study of Christian history for the coming generation worldwide.
"Adrian Hastings and the international team of scholars working with him have produced one of the most useful texts available for studying the history of Christianity in its various manifestations and expressions around the world. Designed for the classroom and as a reference work, A World History of Christianity takes the reader from the very beginnings of the Christian movement through to the 1990s.... The authors provide a balanced and inclusive overview of the development of Christianity through the centuries. The book also offers fascinating details and enlightening glimpses into the periods covered....Hastings and the authors are to be commended for presenting this varied material within a coherent and readable framework. Compared to other contemporary single or multivolume resources on the history of Christianity, this book is unparalleled in its ease of use and breadth of coverage."
