Abstract:

"How do we study Christianity? What is the history of Christianity? What does it teach? How is it lived and experienced around the world? How is the the world's largest religion expressed in culture? The Christian Experience is the first textbook to combine historical and doctrinal approaches to Christianity with a focus on its artistic and material expressions and lived experiences. Christianity's art, music and architecture are brought to the fore throughout this chronological survey. Each chapter includes boxed 'first encounters' and personal experience sections to bring the subject alive for students, mirroring the successful format of the author's highly successful Experiencing World Religions 6th edition. Throughout, 100 color images are used, and each chapter concludes with further guidance on print and electronic resources and a glossary of key terms. The Christian Experience unfolds times and practices for students, providing accessible insights into how Christianity was lived and has been lived, and may be lived in the future"--
