Item Description...
Overview
2000 Years of Amazing Grace is an accessible and easy-reading history of Christianity that focuses on the essentials of the Christian message, centrally, salvation by grace. It presents a luminous and enthusiastic digest of vital Christian beliefs and an account of how Christianity evolved from Jesus to the present. It also features biographical sketches of key figures, extensive citation from founding documents, and discusses Christianity's relationship to other world religions today. What distinguishes this book from other overviews of Christianity is Paul Zahl's lively and accessible style of writing and his vigorous advocacy of orthodox Christian faith. His own personal commitment to Christianity is a guiding force in the book. He also readily acknowledges the ways in which Christians and Christian institutions have failed to live up to the founder's teachings and have distorted his message. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand Christianity's long history, and how that history has led to a thriving faith today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Illuminating Stories, very well researched.  Jan 17, 2010
I couldn't put this book down. It lived up to its name, giving the 2000 year history of the Christian church in a concise, clear and interesting narrative style. What a great resource, and it gave an appreciation for the courage of Christians throughout our history, and the forces which drove and sustained the protestant reformation. I found the author's tone very warm. He is an amazing scholar,but wrote not just for the learned, but for people who may be reading this story for the first time. This was informative and extremely well researched, and gave me a deep appreciation for the Nicene Creed, the Liturgy, and the transformative power of the Christian faith throughout history.
