Beginning with the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century, this fully revised and updated second volume of The Story of Christianity continues the marvelous history of the world's largest religion. Award-winning historian Justo Gonzalez bring to life the people, dramatic events, and theological debates that have shaped Protestantism, Catholicism, and Orthodoxy. From the monk Martin Luther, who dared to stand up to a corrupt pope, to the surprising spread and growing vitality of today's church in Africa, Asia, and South America, The Story of Christianity offers a complete and up-to-date retelling of this amazing history. With new information on the important contributions of women to church history as well as the latest information on Christianity in developing countries, Gonzalez's richly textured study discusses the changes and directions of the church up to the twenty-first century. The Story of Christianity covers such recent occurrences as the fall of the Soviet Union and the return of the Russian Orthodox Church; feminist, Africa-American, and Third-World theologies; the scandals and controversies facing the reign of Pope Benedict XVI; interfaith dialogue; and the movement toward unity of all Christian churches. This revised and updated edition of The Story of Christianity concludes with a thoughtful look at the major issues and debates facing Christianity today.

Beginning with the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century, this second volume of The Story of Christianity continues narrative history to the present. Historian Justo Gonzalez brings to life the people, dramatic events, and shaping ideas of Protestantism, Catholicism, and Orthodoxy during this period, keynoting crucial theological developments while providing fresh understanding of the social, political, and economic forces that influenced the formation of the church. In particular, the author notes recurring themes of unrest, rebellion, and reformation. Gonzalez presents an illuminating record of the lives, impelling ideas, and achievements of such prominent figures as Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, and John Calvin––movers and shapers in the emerging Protestant church. His biographical insights, in conjunction with vivid historical accounts, reveal how individual lives mirror and clarify core theological concerns and developments. The interpretive overview of The Story of Christianity includes a thorough and timely analysis of the growth and maturation of Christianity, including events in Europe, the United States, and Latin America––the latter an area too often neglected in church histories, yet increasingly vital to an understanding of Christianity's historical development, present situation, and future, options. Gonzalez's richly textured study discusses the changes and directions of the church in the traditions of Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, and Eastern Christianity. The Story of Christianity covers such recent occurrences as the World Council of Churches, the Second Vatican Council, the movement toward Christian unity, and much more. It concludes with a thoughtful look at the major issues and debates involving Christians today.

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. Gonzalez 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 fo 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.

Church history is the story of the greatest community the world has known and the greatest movement in world history. Yet, just as the biblical record of the people of God is the story of a mixed people with great acts of faith and great failures in sin and unfaithfulness, so is the history of the people who have made up the church down through the ages. Church History, Volume Two is an account of the ups and downs, the triumphs and struggles, of the Christian movement. It offers a unique contextual view of how the Christian church spread and developed from the just prior to the Reformation and through the next five-hundred-plus years into the present-day. This book looks closely at the integral link between the history of the world and that of the church, detailing the times, cultures, and events that both influenced and were influenced by the church. Filled with maps, charts, and illustrations, gives primary attention to the history of Christianity in the West (western Europe and North America), but given the global and ecumenical environment of the twenty-first century, it also covers Africa, eastern Europe, Asia, and Latin America.

Diese historische Untersuchung von "Der Ursprung des Christentums" wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Karl Kautsky (1854-1938) war ein deutsch-tschechischer Philosoph und sozialdemokratischer Politiker. Kautskys Studienfächer Philosophie, Geschichte und Volkswirtschaftslehre waren bereits im Hinblick auf seine politischen Interessen hin ausgewählt worden. Unter anderem deshalb gelang es ihm bereits während seiner Studienzeit, unter dem Psydonym "Symmachos" verfassten Artikeln zu einem der einflussreichsten Journalisten der sozialdemokratischen Presse zu werden. 1881 lernte er bei einer Reise nach London Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels kennen. 1883 gründete er die Zeitschrift Die Neue Zeit, deren Herausgeber und leitender Redakteur er bis 1917 blieb. Er schrieb politische und historische Studien und wurde zu einer Autorität auf dem Gebiet der Marx'schen Theorie. Inhalt: Die Persönlichkeit Jesu Die heidnischen Quellen Die christlichen Quellen Der Kampf um das Jesusbild Die Gesellschaft der römischen Kaiserzeit Die Sklavenwirtschaft Das Staatswesen Denken und Empfinden der römischen Kaiserzeit Das Judentum Israel Das Judentum seit dem Exil Die Anfänge des Christentums Die urchristliche Gemeinde Die christliche Messiasidee Judenchristen und Heidenchristen Die Passionsgeschichte Christi Die Entwicklung der Gemeindeorganisation Christentum und Sozialdemokratie

30. Januar 1933: Adolf Hitler wird deutscher Reichskanzler. Noch ahnt niemand, dass sein Regime Deutschland zerstören wird. Doch schon zwei Tage später warnt der junge Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer im Rundfunk vor dem "Ver-Führer". Nach langem inneren Ringen entscheidet er sich schließlich, als Doppelagent gegen Hitler zu arbeiten. Das kostet ihm 1945 im KZ Flossenbürg das Leben. Metaxas erzählt Bonhoeffers Geschichte und lässt ihn in zum Teil wenig bekannten Briefen zu Wort kommen. Sein entschiedener Glaube an Jesus Christus gab ihm die Kraft für sein mutiges Handeln. Für eine möglichst gute Lesbarkeit der Ahnentafel ist ein E-Book-Reader mit Zoom-Funktion erfoderlich. Inklusive vieler s/w-Bilder.
