Item description for A Short World History of Christianity by Robert Bruce Mullin...

Overview
With highly readable narrative, Robert Bruce Mullin surveys the rise and spread of Christianity throughout the world. Global in focus and covering the expanse of Christian history, the book unveils the challenges that Christianity has faced throughout the centuries. "[F]ire is a multivalent metaphor. It destroys and refines; its light illuminates while its smoke conceals. . . . In taking 'fire upon the earth' as the guiding metaphor for the story of Christianity in world history, this book attempts to do justice to the image's multifaceted implications. Friends, enemies, and neutral observers have judged the story of Christianity to be one of amazing creativity and terrible destruction, of fearless accomplishments and grim failures. . . . Whatever else there is to be said, Christianity has left its mark on the world as surely as any fire. And the story and the mark form the subject of this book." -from the introduction

Reviews - What do customers think about A Short World History of Christianity?

Poorly Written, Very Functional  Oct 16, 2009
This book, at its best, is poorly written -- stiff, simplistic to the point of being condescending. If you know something of early Christianity, it is barely adequate; the work gets better as the reader and author progress through time. That being said, the view is that if a Christian writer, not an agnostic historian, and this too detracts from the work. There are better short histories of Christianity available -- Martin Marty's work of the same name comes to mind - and if you have an interest in early Christianity, check out the work of Bart Ehrman.
 
Great History.  Apr 25, 2009
This is a well written short history of Christianity.
It reads like a novel.
Try it.

 
An examination of the religion's impact as a whole throughout the ages  Jun 7, 2008
There is no force that has had a greater impact on the world than Christianity - and "A Short World History of Christianity" is an examination of the religion's impact as a whole throughout the ages. Starting with the birth of Jesus, it covers the over two millennia that follow, discussing each of the following major topics that the religion has done to change the world. "A Short World History of Christianity" is a must for both world history collections and Christian studies shelves.
 
An excellent account of Christian history; scholarly and very readable  Mar 29, 2008
I've read a few chapters of this book in proof form prior to publication. Mullin's gift is the ability to make history accessible and interesting, while not compromising on scholarly foundations or analytical complexity. His insights into Christian history are new and illuminating, and yet ring with the truth of careful, sound scholarship and analysis. Anyone, be they student, scholar, believer, inquirer or skeptic will find this work challenging, intriguing and very rewarding. Mullin is that rare academic who is brilliant scholar, illuminating teacher, and an excellent writer. This is a great place to begin a study of Christian history or to refresh one's knowledge. This work belongs on the bookshelves of anyone at all interested in the history of Christianity.
