Synopsis: Christianity has a deceptively simple core, but is an extremely diverse religion. Frankiel approaches that diversity by a historical study that traces the contours of development and identifies some of the major different religious styles, worldviews, and directions within the religion. She then examines the characteristics of Christianity that endure over time those that make it distinct from other religions. This multidimensional approach provides a rich picture of Christianity by utilizing a variety of perspectives, bringing some material into view more than once to reinforce learning and provoke questions.

"A fascinating and bold venture at interpreting Christianity in the round. Frankiel offers a sustained historical analysis of Christianity in its many aspects, an analysis of its central symbols and rituals and their transformations, and two case studies of Christian impulses in relationship to cultural episodes. Readers will find this book as stimulating as it is ambitious." --John F. Wilson, Princeton University
"A coherent introductory work which, in little more than 100 pages, comes to grips with Christianity s meaning as religious experience and expression.... I am truly impressed. In clear and lucid prose, Frankiel supplies an absorbing account of the history of the Christian tradition." --Catherine L. Albanese, University of California, Santa Barbara
"A nice blend of history, spirituality, and theology that should give the beginning student a good sense of the Christian tradition. Crisply written, economical without being superficial, it can be highly recommended as a first entry into the story of Christianity." --Lawrence S. Cunningham, University of Notre Dame
