This superb textbook provides the first genuinely global one-volume study of the rise and development of the Christian faith. Written by an international team of specialists, A World History of Christianity takes seriously the geographical diversity of the Christian story. Extensive chapters cover not only the development of Christianity in the West -- the only perspective offered by most studies -- but also extensively discuss the spread and impact of Christianity in Latin America, Africa, India, the Orient, and Australasia. Each chapter focuses on what matters most in the specific time and place covered, ensuring that readers are introduced to the major themes -- social, theological, political, and cultural -- that together constitute Christianity's role in world history.
