In The Story of Christianity: Volume 1, Justo L. González, author of the highly praised three-volume History of Christian Thought, presents a narrative history of Christianity, from the Early Church to the Dawn of the Protestant Reformation. From Jesus’ faithful apostles to the early reformist John Wycliffe, González skillfully traces core theological issues and developments within the various traditions of the church, including major events outside of Europe, such as the Spanish and Portuguese conquest of the New World. This updated and expanded edition incorporates recent archaeological discoveries about the life of Early Christian Communities, as well as important contemporary research revealing the significant role of women throughout the history of the church. With lively storytelling, The Story of Christianity provides a fascinating and panoramic history of the dramatic events, colourful characters, and revolutionary ideas that shaped the first fifteen centuries of the church.

The Story of Christianity, Volume 1, is an informative, interesting, and consistently readable narrative history. It brings alive the people, dramatic events, and ideas that shaped the first fifteen centuries of Europe, such as the Spanish and Portuguese conquest of the New World. Historian Justo Gonzalez shows how various social, political, and economic movements affected Christianity's internal growth.

González skillfully weaves in relevant details from the lives of prominent figures from the apostles to John Wycliffe, tracing out core theological issues and developments as reflected in the lives and struggles of leading thinkers within the various traditions of the church. "The history of the church, while showing all the characteristics of human history, is much more than the history of an institution or movement," Gonzalez stresses. "It is a history of the deeds of the spirit in and through the men and women who have gone before in the faith." The Story of Christianity demonstrates at each point what new challenges and opportunities faced the church, and how Christians struggled with the various options open to them, thereby shaping the future direction of the church.

The Story of Christianity will serve as a fascinating introduction to the panoramic history of Christianity for students and teachers of church history, for pastors, and for general readers.

Regardless of how you feel about Christianity, there is no denying the huge impact it has had (and continues to have) on the political, cultural, and social history of the Western world. I feel like my dip into a survey of Christian history has given me a better launching pad for understanding the world around me and how it ended up this way (for good and for bad). It is also really helping stoke my fascination with the English royal family, although that shows up more in Volume two....

As with the written history of any specific people, The Story of Christianity begins by describing the influence of the Jewish people and social structure of the time, but quickly transitions to the more specific events that surround the budding movement of Christianity. After discussing the severe persecutions inflicted upon the early Christians, the narrative moves into that part of Christianity that is described by González as the Imperial Church. From the Imperial Church and its primary movers the story line proceeds to introduce those factors that are have substantial influence upon the period described as Medieval Christianity. As the Medieval Age of the Church comes to a close, González chronicles the beginning of the Protestant movement as the governmental arm of the Western Church begins a course towards civil politics and self-service. González shows his astute scholarship as Volume I finishes with a discussion of the influence exerted by both Spain and Portugal in their efforts to expand and strengthen empire and economy, taking Christianity to new and exotic lands.

With the intervention of Constantine, the plight of the Early Christians turned to triumph; yet, the imposition of imperial weight to the structure of Christianity produced a change in Church polity that continues to be felt in the present. The good that Constantine sought under an idea of uniformity – a laudable goal – resulted in a Church that took on the characteristics of civil government; specifically, the coalescence of ecclesiastical power under the office of one man using a ruling elite to enforce church law (a condition felt by both the Western and Eastern arm of the Church). The Reformation, with its lofty goal of returning the Church to a sola scriptura structure, has also left indelible marks which continue to be felt in a fragmented Church; perhaps stronger in diversity but certainly weaker in unity. An overriding theme that appears to permeate Volume I is the interwoven nature of the Church and civil government, regrettably both using the other as a tool for prominence and control. ( )
