Review: "Edited by a Duke University religious scholar with more than 1,000 articles, this encyclopedia does for Protestantism what the New Catholic Encyclopedia did for Catholicism. Topics include biographies, historical data, and organizations, as well as cultural, social, and religious themes. Controversial topics, such as abortion, creation science, and homosexuality, are treated objectively. Topping it off are a thorough index and appendixes containing historical and contemporary statistical data. Nearly 500 contributors worldwide helped create this comprehensive source."--"Reference that rocks," American Libraries, May 2005

This book is a history of Christianity from its earliest beginnings to the end of the twentieth century. The book provides students with an introduction to the many persons, places, movements, and events necessary for the telling of our story, the story of the Church. This history of Christianity is told in its essentials, simply and straightforwardly for students with little or no experience in the academic study of religion. It is a story told within the complex contexts of larger world events and world cultures, but defined and simplified by attention to those developments which have proven most influential for the past and present shaping of Church thought and practice. The book is a comprehensive and definitive introduction to the history of Christianity. It provides students with the necessary outline and description of the broad sweep of movements and periods in this history, but it also pauses at important points to provide details about the lives of Christians as lived at various times and in various locations. This story is told in easy-to-understand prose and with illustrative photographs, maps and charts.
