An in-depth treatment of the topic...not light reading

It is almost 2000 years since the birth of Jesus Christ...during these two millennia Christianity has proved more influential in shaping human destiny than any other institutional philosophy, but there are now signs that its period of predominance is drawing to a close, thereby inviting a retrospective and a balance sheet.

"In this book I have attempted to survey the whole history in one volume. This involves much compression and selection, but has the advantage of providing new and illuminating perspectives, and of demonstrating how the varied themes of Christianity repeat and modulate themselves through the centuries."
