It’s Christian social and cultural history . This was such a wonderful text to read. I could not discern the authors’ bias - how shocking in any academic work on Christianity. This anthology gives a historical outline of Christian social thought from Alexander the Great to late twentieth century and is a fine textbook for those referring to it for advanced high school or college undergraduate study in Catechesis, History, Art and Philosophy This omission does not confound the purpose of the book, but its inclusion would contribute substantially to the initial focus of the book and is essential to understand the religiosity, soteriology and history of Christianity.

The book is written in quite sophisticated Greek and uses the technical terminology of Hellenistic philosophy and science. Its literary style is that of the Hellenistic diatribe, in which the author publicly debates issues, raising questions and offering solutions.

Written by contributing scholars who are experts in specific facets of developing Christianity, this survey provides a well-rounded introduction to the history of Christianity and is ideal for anyone interested in the impact of Christianity of world culture down through history. It shows how Christianity emerged from its original Jewish context and developed into a worldwide religion, offering perceptive studies on how its origins and development were influenced by the changing social and cultural contexts in which the founders and leaders of this tradition lived and thought.Provides detailed evidence of the influence of Greco-Roman and Jewish religious concepts and religious movements on the origins of Christianity, considers the structuring of the church conceptually and organizationally in Europe, and discusses Christianity's spread and growth in America and throughout the world. Looks at the profound impact of the culture of the later Roman and medieval world on the development of Christian doctrine and intellectual traditions and helps readers understand the reasons for the divisions between Catholic and Protestant traditions. For theologians.


Reviews about Christianity: A Social and Cultural History (2):
Altad
Christianity: A Social and Cultural History is likely designed to be a college textbook. In fact, I ordered this used a few years ago and it came with some past college bookstore stickers. So, that might help give you a picture at the target audience of this work. The main thrust the authors hope to convey is “to perceive how Christianity emerged from its original Jewish context and developed into a worldwide religion through engagement with the social and cultural dimensions of the world contemporary with its origins and evolution” (vii).

I’m basically just going to list the divisions of the book and anyone should be able to read the title, the divisions of the book and put together the rest. CASCH is divided into six parts. Part One is about the nascent movement of Christianity and its early growth. Part Two Moves into the Christian Empire and the early Middle Ages. Part Three moves from the late Middle Ages to the Reformation. Part Four details European Christianity’s response to modernism. Part Five next details American Christian culture and finally Part Six moves to a more global context of modern Christianity.

Hopefully that will give the basics. It’s Christian social and cultural history. This was such a wonderful text to read. I could not discern the authors’ bias - how shocking in any academic work on Christianity. It’s presented very objectively and only touches on theological issues when necessary for some further explanation. I’ve read plenty of Christian history works from theological or apologetic standpoints, but this one was very refreshing to read through a different lens. I can’t recommend it enough for virtually any reader, especially those who are familiar with Christian thought from a theological standpoint and would like a different perspective from which to read that history.

This anthology gives a historical outline of Christian social thought from Alexander the Great to late twentieth century and is a fine textbook for those referring to it for advanced high school or college undergraduate study in Catechesis, History, Art and Philosophy . Those however requiring an academic understanding for subjects such as the sociology of religion might find it too general and not specific to the cannon of primary texts of theory. The book is a handy reference which I refer to often. However there is a conspicuous omission in this volume, that is, the oral and written origins of the Christianity found through the Jewish tradition. This omission does not confound the purpose of the book, but its inclusion would contribute substantially to the initial focus of the book and is essential to understand the religiosity, soteriology and history of Christianity. A chapter like the one found in Jewish Philosophy An Historical Introduction, Continuum, London, 2003. Chapter 8, Rabbinic history: from Alexander the Great to Muhammad is useful reading prior to the study of this chronicle.
