This new edition includes a new preface; updates throughout the book; revised "further readings" for each chapter; and two new chapters, including one spotlighting Vatican II and Lausanne as turning points of the recent past.Students in academic settings and church adult education contexts will benefit from this one-semester survey of Christian history.
