    The Compact Guide to Christian History

    Invaluable for anyone who wants to understand the church today

    Taken as a whole, Christianity is the world's largest religion. Its story has been told many times before. Often, however, the truly global nature of this religion has been slighted with Christianity in Europe and America occupying center stage. In The Compact Guide to Christian History, Stephen Backhouse guides us through the history of the faith, century by century, showing how Christianity has grown, changed, and shaped the whole world--East and West, North and South.

    Full of helpful illustrations and special features on important people and events, this is an indispensable resource for anyone who would like to understand Christianity's making and influence better.
