About The Book
The author of The Reformation returns with the definitive history of Christianity for our time. Once in a generation a historian will redefine his field, producing a book that demands to be read — a product of electrifying scholarship conveyed with commanding skill. Diarmaid MacCulloch’s Christianity is such a book. Ambitious, it ranges back to the origins of the Hebrew Bible & covers the world, following the three main strands of the Christian faith.
Christianity will teach modern readers things that have been lost in time about how Jesus’ message spread & how the New Testament was formed. It follows the Christian story to all corners of the globe, filling in often neglected accounts of conversions & confrontations in Africa & Asia. It discovers the roots of the faith that galvanized America, charting the rise of the evangelical movement from its origins in Germany & England. This book encompasses all of intellectual history — we meet monks & crusaders, heretics & saints, slave traders & abolitionists, & discover Christianity’s essential role in driving the Enlightenment & the age of exploration, & shaping the course of WWI & WWII.
We live in a time of tremendous religious awareness, when both believers & non-believers are engaged by questions of religion & tradition, seeking to understand the violence sometimes perpetrated in the name of God. The son of an Anglican clergyman, MacCulloch writes with feeling about faith. His last book, The Reformation, was chosen by dozens of publications as Best Book of the Year & won the Nat’l Book Critics Circle Award. This inspiring follow-up is a landmark new history of the faith that continues to shape the world.
