Description:
This classic book, newly updated, tells the story of the Christian faith through the men and women who shaped it. Nothing rouses greater passions than religious differences and the history of Christianity is replete with politics, intolerance and greed, side by side with the most intimate spiritual experiences. Bamber Gascoigne traces a clear path through the complexities, sets the Christian faith in context with other world religions, and entertains the reader with a varied cast of characters, from the hermit St. Simeon, who spent twenty years in the desert on a fifty foot column, to Renaissance popes who manipulated the Church to benefit their illegitimate children.
