From the Back Cover

Christianity began with a handful of disciples following an itinerant preacher as he proclaimed the kingdom of God throughout the region of Palestine. Today, Christianity is the world's predominant faith - a faith that has swept continents, crossed oceans, transformed cultures, and shaped the course of world events.

What is the history of Christianity? How did it spread from its grassroots beginnings to become a worldwide faith? Who are its luminaries - its leaders, theologians, thinkers, preachers, artists, and influencers - from its inception to today? What forms and expressions has it taken through the centuries? How has it influenced and been influenced by different times and cultures?
