A Global History of Christians probes the history of the church not only in Western civilization but also in its worldwide dimension, emphasizing the social, cultural, and popular aspects of that history.
The book includes depictions of everyday life in various Christian communities, descriptions of native cultures as more than objects of missions, and analyses of key developments in society and economics. Sidebars, photos, illustrations, and maps enhance the text.
