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?

Full of lavish full-color photographs and illustrations, the Zondervan Handbook to the History of Christianity offers you a sweeping history of the Christian faith from the time of Jesus and the apostles till now.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book!  Aug 31, 2008
This is a great book on the history of the church, I ended up using it for a class and then bought another copy for my Pastor, who LOVES it!
 
Zondervan History of Christianity  Jul 6, 2008
This is a good overview of Chistian history that anyone can benefit from. Whether you are just being introduced to the subject or are an advanced scholar, this book has useful information. It is richly illustrated and written with the amateur in mind. It should find its way into most church libraries so interested people can look into this book. It may help with Bible studies or provide insight into the early church. It covers the entire spectrum of Christian history from the crucifixion to today and does it with tact and skill.
 
A Grand Illuminating Journey.  Jun 26, 2008
What do we know of our history - what does anyone know of any history?
So few make time to study those people and events that went before us, yet they have great import even to us now.

This book details much of history as it concerns Christianity from the death of Christ to present day. You will finally be able to connect all the dots of a history you never quite understood: creation of Biblical Canon, early Monasticism, rise and fall of Christian Emperors, rise fall and effects of the Papacy, the Crusades, the Reformation and so many key figures that have been either mislabeled or overlooked.

We must know our history, our heritage and what contributed to what we have and know today. This book is both concise yet packed with important details. It flows very well and incorporates many beautiful pictures.

My limiting stars has only to do with the first chapter which seems (to me) to suggest that Christianity, though discussed as history, is not proved as Truth but could be relegated to a belief system among others.
 
Good book, but poorly organized index.  Jul 9, 2007
This book seems fairly good for information and for history. It has great related charts and pictures. However this back of the book index is for the birds. The index is divided into two sections("People" and "Places"). And if you want to look up anything else other than "People" and "Places" such as subjects, theories, or titles(e.g. "Hellenization"), you are out of luck. It really makes doing research so much more challenging that what is probably a very good reference book will not be utilized to its fullest or at all.
