ChristianityBook - 2004
As the world's largest and most widespread religion, Christianity impacts the lives of believers and nonbelievers alike. Its calendar has become the one used internationally. Its history has profoundly shaped Europe and the United States, and its future growth is projected to take place primarily in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. This book introduces the reader to Orthodox, Catholic, Baptist, Anglican, Lutheran, Reformed, Presbyterian, Methodist, Pentecostal, and evangelical Christians. It discusses the life of Jesus of Nazareth, and the writings of Paul, Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John. Christian beliefs, practices, culture, history, holidays, and the future of Christianity are highlighted. Professor of religion Ann Marie B. Bahr presents Christianity as a global faith that will continue to be the world's largest religion well into the foreseeable future. Book jacket.
