The New York Times bestseller and definitive history of Christianity for our time—from the award-winning author of The Reformation and Silence A product of electrifying scholarship conveyed with commanding skill, Diarmaid MacCulloch's Christianity goes back to the origins of the Hebrew Bible and encompasses the globe. It captures the major turning points in Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox history and fills in often neglected accounts of conversion and confrontation in Africa, Latin America, and Asia. MacCulloch introduces us to monks and crusaders, heretics and reformers, popes and abolitionists, and discover Christianity's essential role in shaping human history and the intimate lives of men and women. And he uncovers the roots of the faith that galvanized America, charting the surprising beliefs of the founding fathers, the rise of the Evangelical movement and of Pentecostalism, and the recent crises within the Catholic Church. Bursting with original insights and a great pleasure to read, this monumental religious history will not soon be surpassed.

A fresh and inspirational daily encounter with fascinating people, pivotal moments, and crucial issues over two millennia of Christian history. What happened on this day-or, more precisely, what happened on this day that should interest and inspire Christians? The Christian History Devotional has the answer. For every day of the year, The Christian History Devotional contains a Bible verse, a brief story from Christian history connected with the date, and a prayer that applies the day's story to the reader's life. It turns Christian history, which many readers might assume is boring or irrelevant, into an uplifting and fascinating devotional experience. While drawing from two thousand years of history, Lang provides readers with fascinating stories from a wide span of subjects-missions, evangelism, social reforms, Bible versions, martyrdoms, church-state relations, music, art, and literature.
