Item Description...
This global history of the Christian tradition considers both the geographical growth of Christianity, and how its doctrines developed over the centuries and across the world. The result is a balanced and accessible book, which offers a full survey of Christianity in both the West and East, and which covers many key issues, including the ways in which the tradition has appropriated various social institutions in order to secure its own cultural identity across the world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Solid overview, but no citation whatsoever...  Sep 19, 2007
This is a very good overview of the history of Christianity. It is, however, COMPLETELY void of citation. No footnotes, endnotes, bibliography, etc. Though this obviously facilitates the reading, it leaves many claims "unsupported". I feel it is unsuited for academic work other than as a starting point for real research.

Treatment of subject matter: 5 stars
Lack of citation: 1 star
A good view in the perspective of mission  Mar 10, 2006
The perspective of Norris is to show the efforts of christianity for mission. It's not difficult to read this book because of his pleasant style of writing.
Excellent History of the Church  May 9, 2003
For those who want to know the facts, the ins and outs, and who do not have a background in Church history this book is for you. Dr. Norris presents a very detailed review of Christianity in all of its triumphs and losses. He also links the religion often called "Western" to its real roots in Asia. The richness of the Christians of the East has been so often neglected by those concentrating on simply European Church history. We must not forget the stories of those Christians who fought and struggled to gain a foothold in Asia. Excellent work.
Well written history - A must read!  Mar 4, 2003
As a seminary student I found this book to be an excellent overview of the growth of Christianity in the western world as well as Asia, and Africa, and South America. It is a wealth of information, written in an easy to read manner that engages the reader directly with the culture.

Dr. Norris does an excellent job incorporating quotes and anecdotes about various missionaries throughout history, information that is not normally found in your standard history textbook. I highly recommend this book to any student of world missions.

A Highly Commendable Concise Historical Treatment  Mar 1, 2003
This concise volume is a valuable and timely addition to a growing list of monographs detailing a history of global Christianity. Norris' meticulous attentiveness to the historical development of Christianity in Asia, the Far East, and Africa effectively exposes the shortsightedness of the long held assumption that Christianity is a Western religion. Compactness comes at a price, however, and more demanding readers will note a lack of depth some areas. But the author makes up for this with insightful analysis and highly readable prose. Strongly recommended.
