A comprehensive account of Christianity in all its historical and geographical diversity. This book, originally published as The Oxford Illustrated History of Christianity, traces the growth and development of Christianity from the earliest communities of believers to a world religion whose adherents number over 2000 million. The first section deals with Christianity up to 1800, and includes chapters on the effects of the Reformation and the Enlightenment, and on Christianity's relations with the Islamic world. The second part considers Christianity in its worldwide context, with chapters on Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Orthodox Churches of Eastern Europe. A concluding section, 'Christianity Today and Tomorrow', reflects on questions of theology, conscience, and belief and examines the challenges which the modern world poses for the Christian community in the future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition full of wise insights, balance of information, reliable scholarship and precision of writing * Times Literary Supplement *
I know of no other book on this subject which is so wide Nn coverage and penetration.' * Financial Times *
An extensive and partly annotated list of further reading will be very helpful to the reader who wants to go beyond a one chapter account of two or three medieval centuries, or of a whole continent in later times. * David J. Hall, The Friend *
