A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years

4.11 (5,339 ratings by Goodreads)

Paperback | English

By (author): Diarmaid MacCulloch

Diarmaid MacCulloch''''s epic, acclaimed history A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years follows the story of Christianity around the globe, from ancient Palestine to contemporary China.

How did an obscure personality cult come to be the world''''s biggest religion, with a third of humanity its followers? This book, now the most comprehensive and up to date single volume work in English, describes not only the main facts, ideas and personalities of Christian history, its organization and spirituality, but how it has changed politics, sex, and human society.

Taking in wars, empires, reformers, apostles, sects, churches and crusaders, Diarmaid MacCulloch shows how Christianity has brought humanity to the most terrible acts of cruelty - and inspired its most sublime accomplishments.

''''A prodigious, thrilling, masterclass of a history book''''

''''Essential reading for those enthralled by Christianity and for those enraged by it''''
