Description

“It would be difficult to imagine anyone reading this book without finding some new insight or inspiration, some new and unexpected testimony to the astonishing breadth of Christianity through the centuries.” — Philip Jenkins, author ofThe Lost History of Christianity

“Interesting, insightful, illuminating, and remarkably relevant.” — Marcus Borg, author ofThe Heart of Christianity

In the tradition of Howard Zinn comes a new history of Christianity that reveals its bottom-up movements over the past 2,000 years, which preserved Jesus’s original message of social justice, and how this history is impacting the church today.

In A People's History of Christianity, historian and religion expert Diana Butler Bass reveals an alternate history that includes a deep social ethic and far-reaching inclusivity: "the other side of the story" is not a modern phenomenon, but has always been practiced within the church. Butler Bass persuasively argues that corrective-even subversive-beliefs and practices have always been hallmarks of Christianity and are necessary to nourish communities of faith. In the same spirit as Howard Zinn's groundbreaking work The People's History of the United States, Butler Bass's A People's History of Christianity brings to life the movements, personalities, and spiritual disciplines that have always informed and ignited Christian worship and social activism. A People's History of Christianity authenticates the vital, emerging Christian movements of our time, providing the historical evidence that celebrates these movements as thoroughly Christian and faithful to the mission and message of Jesus., Fri Sep 29 2017 02:09PM: IN TRANSIT from skline to can-1- -09-29-2017 14:09, Includes bibliographical references (pages 315-341) and index., Liberalism, MWT11588991, Midwest, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New York :HarperOne,2010, ©2009., Read by Karen Saltus., Saltus, Karen.|Narrator, Streaming audio., The way : early Christianity, 100-500.
