A fascinating history that reveals Christianity’s roots, its often-unknown and surprising traditions, and its influence on the world today.

There is the accepted, often-repeated version of Christian history-and then there’s the real story. In this gripping volume, I uncover the little-known details of the world’s largest religion.

How did Christianity originate? Who created its earliest writings? Who decided which books would be in the Bible? Where did the ideas of heaven and hell originate, and when did people begin taking the Bible literally? How did Christianity evolve and fracture into the many forms it takes today? From fascinating background on its central tenets to curious details that have been largely swept under the rug, this comprehensive overview traces Christianity from ancient practices through its centuries-long rise in popularity, power, influence, and dominance.
