Told in easy-to-understand language with helpful time lines and selections from historical writings, this engaging new introduction will appeal especially to students with little or no experience in the study of religion. A New History of Christianity provides a definitive overview of the many persons, places, movements, and events necessary for the telling of our story, the story of the Church. It is a story told within the complex contexts of larger world events and world cultures, but defined and simplified by attention to those developments that have proven most influential. Knowing that the history of Christianity presents students with a daunting array of names and events, Hillerbrand focuses only on those that provide the best insights into Christianity's contribution to world culture, both past and present.

Hans J. Hillerbrand is a distinguished Reformation historian who is the author of a number of books on the sixteenth century, many of which have become standard texts. He is Professor of Religion at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. He has served as President of the American Society of Church History and the American Academy of Religion, and was editor of The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Reformation and The Encyclopedia of Protestantism.
