About the Book

A fully illustrated account of the Christian faith from the life of Jesus to today…

Historians have long been fascinated with the question of how an individual born in a small corner of the Roman Empire inspired a movement that would in time first dominate Rome and then become integral to every aspect of what we now call Western Civilization.

Nor did it end there. Christianity would spread around the world, plant roots in every region, and blend with other cultures to produce vital new traditions. Today, it is the world's largest religion and still growing quickly in lands far from its middle-eastern origins.

Now Easton Press is proud to offer the authoritative and lavishly illustrated history: The Story of Christianity, an exclusive leather-bound Collector’s Edition.

A chronicle of Christian civilization.


Written by acclaimed art historian, archaeologist, film-maker, and author Jean-Pierre Isbouts, whose books include the international bestsellers, The Biblical World, and In the Footsteps of Jesus, The Story of Christianity draws on the latest historical research to create a fascinating account of the religion's evolution and profound effect on the world.
Beginning with the life of Jesus, The Story of Christianity explores how Christianity spread through the Greco-Roman world, the key turning points and people of its subsequent two millennia history, and its role in the 21st century.

Focusing on the religion's rich social and cultural history, Isbouts examines the deep and crucial influence Christianity has had on Western Civilization – on art, philosophy, music, literature, law, and politics – and how even in the darkest times Christian ideals have been a moral beacon for those wishing to make the world better.

The story is sumptuously illustrated with hundreds of gorgeous images – photographs, reproductions of artwork and artifacts, specially commissioned maps, informative sidebars and time lines – that document and celebrate the faith's history and contribution to the world’s cultural heritage.
