Format: Paperback
As a Mennonite, I first turned to the chapter on "Mennonites, Amish, and Brethren" and was happily surprised to find that we were not caracitured as just a quaint, simple people. The history behind our traditions helped even me make sense of why we don't do things other Christians do (for example, why my Amish cousins don't wear mustaches with their beards or why my father never voted in presidential elections). Easy to read but very substantive (the author's Ph.D. in history is from University of Chicago). A great nightstand book because of manageable section sizes. Or just a great resource to pull off the shelf when you want to understand the beliefs of your new neighbor or a co-worker.

Format: Paperback
I was raised by parents of two different Christian religions and have often been confused by the differences between the two--and the many other religions. Webb does a terrific job of giving readers the information they're looking for on every Christian religion. I now have a better understanding of not just Catholics and Episcopalians, but Mormons, Amish, Quakers and I especially loved the information on the Jehovah's Witnesses. A great resource for anyone who's curious or looking to explore the many options Christianity has to offer!

Webb's book does an excellent job of explaining, in very simple terms, the various traditions in the Great Christian Tradition. I found the book engaging, easy to read, at times funny, and very informative. This is a must read!

Format: Paperback
As an Anabaptist in the Mennonite tradition, I first turned to the chapter on "Mennonites, Amish, and Brethren"--and was happily surprised to find that not only were the descriptions of our beliefs and practices right on, they were also revealing even to me of why--because of our history--we don't do some things that other Christians practice (why, for example, my Amish friends don't wear mustaches with their beards, or why my dad never voted in presidential elections). So this is a book that captures not only the bigger denominations in a very reader-friendly way but also those smaller groups that are often dismissed as quaint but irrelevant. A great nightstand book (sections sizes are easy to manage) or just a good reference resource to find out why the new neighbor or coworker believes what he or she believes.

I've been a Christian for over 30 years and felt I had a significant gap in my understanding of why there are so many denominations. Dr. Webb's book had served to fill in that gap. With much insight, Dr. Webb has covered the history of the Christian religion in such a way that he made it easy to understand and enjoyable to learn about. TCIGT Christianity should be a must read for any Christian who has a desire to understand the path that Christianity has taken and is currently taking. Thank you Dr. Webb
