People of Faith is a concise introduction to the history of Christianity as it has been lived and practiced. Beginning at the time of the New Testament the book moves chronologically through the main periods of Christianity, showing how history and belief have been shaped by the many diverse voices attempting to define the faith. * A succinct and student-friendly introduction to the history of Christianity as it has been lived and practiced * Focuses on the changing nature of faith: the five sections of the book look at Faith Defined, Faith Lived, Faith Reformed, Faith Challenged, and Modern Faith * Skillfully mixes the history of the Church with the stories of those who lived and shaped the faith, and the theology which emerged * Includes examples of personal narratives, hymns, and confessions throughout, along with a range of text boxes and sidebars to illustrate how Christianity was practiced and how official actions impacted on the experiences of ordinary believers * Ideal for beginning students with no prior knowledge of the history of Christianity.
