More About This Title A Nearly Infallible History of Christianity


Everything you need to know about the history of the Christian church—and a few bits you didn't want to know thrown in for good measure

From Abelard to Zwingli, via a multitude of saints and sinners, Nick Page guides us through the creeds, the councils, the buildings, and the background of the Christian church in an illuminating, and perhaps ever so slightly irreverent way. A writer, speaker, unlicensed historian, and general information-monger, Nick Page combines in-depth research, historical analysis, and cutting-edge guesswork to explore how on earth the Christian church has survived all that 2,000 years of heroes, villains, and misfits could throw at it (mostly from the inside) to remain one of the most influential forces in the world today.


Nick Page is the author of more than 60 books, including HarperCollins Atlas of Bible History and The MAP: Making the Bible Meaningful, Accessible, Practical.
