Praise

“A whirlwind tour of the history of Christianity . . . [Martin] Marty draws on his deep historical knowledge, and the quirky details he inserts paint a lively picture of Christianity’s spread.”
The Christian Science Monitor

“Only Martin Marty, with his extraordinary range of historical understanding, could have written this masterful account of the Christian world.”
Elaine Pagels, author of The Gnostic Gospels

“A vitally important book: Christianity has never been a more global religion than it is today, yet here we can see how global it has always been. . . . Marty writes with whimsical accessibility, the passion of a believer and the critical eye of a hard-nosed skeptic.”
–Publishers Weekly

“An effective combination of erudition and accessibility.”
–Kirkus Reviews

“A real achievement . . . a rich, multilayered narrative.”
–The Globe and Mail
