This history, the first of two volumes, does for our generation what Kenneth Scott Latourette's A History of the Expansion of Christianity
did for a previous one: provides a scholarly yet readable study of the history of Christianity as a movement. Comprehensive in scope and irenic in tone, Irwin and Sunquist draw upon a consulting team of 43 scholars to produce a sober yet naturally exciting story of the expansion of the Faith. The authors interestingly include developments in spirituality and theological conflicts as contexts for missionary growth. A noted feature of this Book is its intention to demonstrate that from the beginning Christianity was a worldwide religion with foundations in Asia and Africa as well as Europe. 519 pp.
An Eighth Day View:
History of the World Christian Movement shows that from the beginning Christianity has been a world religion, informed and shaped through the interplay of gospel and culture church and world.
