In this compelling volume, historian Martin Marty gives readers of all faiths a brief yet sweeping account of Christian history noting how it grew from a few believers two thousand years ago to become the world's largest religion. With a special emphasis on global Christianity, Marty shows how the religion emerged from its ancestral homeland in Africa and Asia Minor, was imported to Europe, and then expanded from there to the rest of the world. A supremely accessible primer on the history and practice of Christianity, The Christian World is a remarkable testament to how the message of Christ has touched the human experience everywhere.
