Eerdman’s Handbook to the History of Christianity


1 in stock (can be backordered)


If you are interested in learning about the history of Christianity from the time of Christ to the 1970s, Eerdmans’ Handbook to the History of Christianity (640, double-columned pages) is a book I’d recommend to you. It’s a comprehensive, colorful, reliable account of the exciting story of the growth of the church of Jesus Christ. It includes over 450 photographs (many in full color), maps, diagrams, and charts.


Eerdmans’ Handbook to the History of Christianity was written by an international team of 70 contributors from 10 countries. All are professional historians and committed Christians. It is similar in design and format to Eerdmans’ Handbook of the Bible, a popular study guide that also came out in the 70s.

Major sections

The eight major sections introduce the history of Christianity, period-by-period, from its earliest days to the late twentieth century. Specially commissioned main chapters by expert historians form the framework in which many shorter sections appear – on people, movements, and subjects of particular interest.
