The Story of Christianity Volume 1

The Early Church to the Reformation
$26.99
($27.99)

In this fully revised and updated edition, the lauded church historian Justo GonzAlez tells the story of Christianity from its fragile infancy to its pervasive dominance at the dawn of the Protestant Reformation. "The Story of Christianity," volume 1, relates the dramatic events, the colorful characters, and the revolutionary ideas that shaped the first fifteen centuries of the church's life and thought.

From Jesus's faithful apostles to the early reformist John Wycliffe, GonzAlez skillfully weaves details from the lives of prominent figures tracing core theological issues and developments within the various traditions of the church. "The Story of Christianity" demonstrates at each point what new challenges and opportunities faced the church and how Christians struggled with the various options open to them, thereby shaping the future direction of the church.

This new edition of "The Story of Christianity "incorporates recent archaeological discoveries to give us a better view of the early Christian communities. Among these are advances in the recovery of Gnostic texts that have revealed a richer diversity of "Christianities" in the first century. GonzAlez also includes important research done in the past twenty-five years revealing the significant role of women throughout the history of the church.

With lively storytelling incorporating the latest research, T"he Story of Christianity" provides a fascinating introduction to the panoramic history of Christianity.
