Worshipped by 2 billion people worldwide, Jesus Christ is the most famous human being ever. Scholar and journalist Stephen Tomkins takes the reader on a enlightening and enjoyable journey through the key stages of Christianity's development, covering the people, the events, the movements, the controversies and the expansion of the Church in this lively 'warts and all' portrait.

The book begins with the life of Jesus before looking at the spread of the early church in the Roman Empire. Tomkins then continues the story of Christianity right up to the present day, including discussion of topics such as: the Eastern church, battles between East and West, the Reformation, the Counter-Reformation, the Enlightenment and the impact of science. The author also provides a snapshot of the worldwide church of the 21st century and explores the challenges it faces. 224 pages, from Lion.

Endorsements:
"Learned, lively journalist Tomkins, who could not write a dull sentence if he tried, here capsules the global Christian story into a brilliant popular page turner that keeps you reading for hours at a time. It is all brisk and clear, all well digested, all thoroughly serious, and all great fun. In its junior-Johnson class I know of nothing half so good."
- J.I.Packer, Professor of Theology at Regent College, Vancouver

"Steve Tomkins' A Short History of Christianity is the sort of book I wish I'd read fifty years ago. It provides a context for so much of western history over the last two millennia. It explains a lot."
- Terry Jones, medieval scholar and member of Monty Python
