Format: Paperback
My favorite history of Christianity book. Concise description of every time period including just enough details. The pictures and side notes complement the material very well. And most importantly for me, the perspective of the author is hardly pessimistic or overly critical of Christianity, instead he explains everything clearly and in a refreshing manner (as opposed to most authors of history of Christianity books).

Awesome accurate account of Christian History told mostly from an unbiased viewpoint. Well written and great number of extras including character sketches throughout which give greater insights into the characters of the day.

Bought this for a college course I was taking. It was lightly used and still had the included CD ROM with it.

Introduction to the History of Christianity is a comprehensive look into Christianity's infancy. A glimpse at the early church, its leaders and the issues that lead us to where we are today. This book is a must read for anyone that wants to study the who, what, where, when and how of the Christian religion.

I purchased Introduction to The History of Christianity for a class. It is a great resource. Tim Dowley had some great writers put together a great book on how we got where we are today in our faith. It is a simple read. You can read the white pages all the way through and then go back and read the blue pages on different individuals and movements. I will be keeping this book in my library.
