People's History of Christianity

The seven volume A People's History of Christianity has been celebrated for raising awareness of the way in which lay Christians have lived throughout more than 20 centuries of Christian History.By adopting a people's history approach, over 100 contributors turned their attention to the lives of people that history as it is usually told forgets - women, the economically distressed, the politically marginalized, and others - and brought their thoughts on life, death, childhood, marriage, and faith to the forefront.For the first time, the essential material from that important project is available for classroom use! Available as either a single volume or an expanded two-volume set, both represent careful selections and abridgements of the original content so that the importance of lay Christianity can be seen by students.
