Book Summary

"James Adair narrates the history of Christianity, the intellectual and historical context of its origins, its triumph under the Romans, the upheavals of the Crusades, the Protestant and Catholic Reformations and the challenges of the Enlightenment and of the modern age. He explores the intriguing new forms Christianity took in the nineteenth century, the evolution of sects such as Mormonism and Jehovah's Witnesses, and its mission to Africa. Taking a historical and phenomenological approach, Adair interrogates Christianity's role in the modern world, as he surveys liturgical, geographical and denominational perspectives of contemporary Christianity, as well as how Christians interact with modern culture, particularly science, the arts, ethics, political and other religions.".
