An Introduction to Christianity
Cambridge University Press, 2 sep. 2004 - 439 pagina's
An Introduction to Christianity examines the key figures, events and ideas of two thousand years of Christian history and places them in context. It considers the religion in its material as well as its spiritual dimensions and explores its interactions with wider society such as money, politics, force, gender and the family, and non-Christian cultures and societies. This Introduction places particular focus on the ways in which Christianity has understood, embodied and related to power. Comprehensive and accessible, this book will appeal to the student and general reader.
