The Story of Christianity: Updated and Revised Editions

The original editions of The Story of Christianity found a place in college classrooms soon after they were published in the early 80s. However, much has changed in the last 25 years—and author and church historian Justo Gonzalez has revised and updated his two classic volumes to include:
  • New archaeological discoveries that give students a better view of the early Christian Church and communities of Christians.

  • Advances in the recovery of Gnostic texts that have revealed a richer diversity of “Christianities” in the first century.

  • The latest research into the role of women throughout the history of the Christian Church.

  • A look at how Christianity has been in decline in Europe and the US—and on the rise in Latin America, Africa, and Asia.

THE STORY OF CHRISTIANITY by Justo GonzalezThe Story of Christianity: Volume 1, The Early Church to the Dawn of the Reformation is available now. (ISBN 9780061855887, paperback, $25.99)

The Story of Christianity: Volume 2, The Reformation to the Present Day will be available in early December—in time for spring adoption. (ISBN 9780061855894, paperback, $24.99)

Both will continue to give students a thorough and reasoned introduction to the history of Christianity.

If you need a desk copy of either volume, please let us know.
