Gain a better understanding of Christianity--its history, driving ideas, and numerous diversities--with the help of this best-selling Christianity text by the leading, respected authors Weaver and Brakke. This long-awaited INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIANITY, Fourth Edition, offers a solid, practical foundation of the essentials of Christianity, interlaced with dynamic discussion and glimpses into some of the latest Christian movements worldwide. Fresh, thematic Sidebars, a popular hallmark of this book, weave current issues such as today's spirituality into history, while the book's balanced coverage brings to life the historical, cultural, theological, and social aspects of Christianity's development. You focus on the significant movements, key individuals, and powerful controversies that have united as well as divided Christians throughout the decades and centuries. New and updated thematic Sidebars, a popular hallmark of this book, weave currency into the history with a focus on spirituality, people, concepts, and controversies, including a new set of Sidebars that focus on the human experience of the divine. The text engages students to discuss and reflect upon the challenges that Christians have faced throughout time. INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIANITY, Fourth Edition, promises a thought-provoking introduction and insights you won't want to miss.
