Justo L Gonzalez

$37.99

Paperback

Beginning with the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, this volume continues the narrative history of The Story of Christianity through the "modern" centuries to the present. Historian Justo Gonzalez brings to life the significant people and events in Protestantism, Catholicism, and Orthodoxy during this period, keynoting crucial theological developments while providing fresh understanding of the social, political, and economic forces that influenced the Church. In particular, the author highlights recurring themes of unrest, rebellion, and reformation. Featured are illuminating assessments of such prominent figures as Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, and John Calvin - movers and shakers in the emerging Protestant church. Gonzalez' biographical insights, in conjunction with vivid accounts of historical context, reveal how individual lives mirror and clarify core theological concerns and developments.

The interpretive overview of The Story of Christianity includes a thorough and timely analysis of the growth and maturation of Christianity, encompassing events not only in Europe, and the United States, but also Latin America - an area too often neglected in church histories, yet increasingly vital to an understanding of Christianity's historical development, present situation, and future options. Gonzalez' richly textured study discusses the most recent changes in the traditions of Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, and Eastern Christianity, covering the World Council of Churches, the Second Vatican Council, the movement toward Christian unity, and much more. It concludes with a thoughtful look at the major issues and debates involving Christians today.
