A Nearly Infallible History Of Christianity Hardback Book

Artist: Nick Page


Barcode: 9781444750126

Everything you need to know about the history of the Christian church - and a fair few bits you didn´?¢t want to know thrown in for good measure. From Abelard to Zwingli, via a multitude of saints and sinners, Nick Page guides us through the creeds, the councils, the buildings and the background of the Christian church in an illuminating, and perhaps ever so slightly irreverent way. Well-known as a writer, speaker, unlicensed historian and general information-monger, Nick Page combines in-depth research, historical analysis and cutting-edge guesswork to explore how on earth the Christian church has survived all that 2,000 years of heroes, villains and misfits could throw at it (mostly from the inside) to remain one of the most influential forces in the world today. ´?¢I was predestined to read this.´?¢ John Calvin. ´?¢I felt my heart strangely warmed. Or it could have been indigestion.´?¢ John Wesley.
