Tradition dictates that around AD 33, as the Roman Empire slowly decayed, a new religion rose to prominence: Christianity. Two thousand years later, Christianity stands triumphant as one of the greatest religions on earth. It teaches love, peace, and acceptance - but its rise to prominence was fraught with just the opposite. In the early centuries after the death of Christ, Christianity was a seething cauldron of contradictions and compromise, corruption and convenience. As the leaders of state tried to weave this new religion into their agendas and their subjects' lives, elements of legend, paganism, and personal philosophy became imbedded with truth. Saints, Sinners, and Christian History takes a careful look at the history of Christianity, a history full of war, murder, lies, and immorality. As evil men performed evil acts in the name of Christ, many true elements of Christianity were lost, while others survived - but how? What steps did men, both saints and sinners, take in their quest to build Christianity? This book will bring you to a better understanding of present Christianity as you uncover its past.

The questions of Christianity are perennial. For example: How are Judaism and Christianity related? Are Jesus and the Holy Spirit God? Is the end of the world imminent? How should we relate faith and reason? In this innovative work, Derek Cooper tells the story of Christian history by presenting the twenty questions (one for each century!) that shaped the Christian church throughout the world. The result is a book that narrates the exciting history of Christianity from a global perspective by means of simple questions and concerns that still face the church today. Each century of world Christian history is explored by means of one question that attempts to encapsulate the central themes and concerns of that century for Christianity. Coverage of each century is sensitive to world regions and theological and cultural concerns that are often overlooked and neglected in books that are oriented in a more Western way.

ÒA history of Christian education must not be confused with a record of the achievements of the Sunday School. The discipline has advanced well beyond that stage, and today's sophisticated students fully understand that no proper concept of the history and philosophy of Christian education can be gained without seeing all the ramifications, implications, and influences that have affected it from pre-Christian times to the present.Ó So Drs. Gangel and Benson have written this book, a historical flow of philisophical thought from a Christian point of view. Its focus is cultural-biographical, discussing each philosophy in its particular socio-historical setting, and giving special attention to significant individuals. The format is chronological, beginning with education in biblical times, working upward through history to arrive at the present - and beyond, raising questions and issues for the future.
