Bestselling historian Jean-Pierre Isbouts (In the Footsteps of Jesus, The Biblical World) takes readers on an inspiring visual journey through the story of Christianity in a book that will appeal across denominations as a perfect gift and family reference. Sumptuously illustrated with hundreds of gorgeous photographs, artefacts, and maps, The Story of Christianity focuses on the rich social and cultural history of Christianity through the ages, from its roots in Palestine to its triumph as a global movement, told through a series of dramatic turning points and unforgettable people. Beginning with the story of Jesus' life, author Isbouts expertly sets key turning points in the story of Christianity in context, from the conversion of Constantine to Martin Luther's protest; from the Crusades to the ministry of mother Theresa. Using the dramatic art and architecture of the Christian faith as visual touch points and highlighting inspiring quotes and stories with resonance to the modern era, Isbouts writes with a deep respect for both Catholic and Protestant traditions and provides an excellent introduction to the complex and compelling world of the Christian faith.
