Description

World History: A Short, Visual Introduction is the ideal path to understanding the historical events that influence Christian history.

Caitlin Corning’s introduction covers the most important people, places, and events with precision and clarity. The major scenes are creatively illustrated by artist Joseph Novak, whose crisp modern style brings history to life. 

The result is an articulate, no-nonsense approach that guides readers through the events of world history—from prehistory to the present day—that have shaped Christianity in the past and affect it today.

World History is part of the Christianity and the Liberal Arts series, which recognizes that many Christians are eager to deepen their understanding of the liberal arts, yet have limited time to do so.

By reviewing key fields—philosophy, history, literature, world religions, and the arts—in a concise, creative way, Christianity and the Liberal Arts books will inspire new insights for a new generation of Christian life and ministry.

Endorsements

"It is difficult to understand the history of the church without a decent understanding of the history of the world. Those humble enough to grant this, who are looking for a primer on the parts of world history that have shaped the Christian tradition, need to look no further. Many thanks to Caitlin Corning for providing what will surely seem a godsend to students and other learners."

"I have taught historical theology at the seminary level for twenty years. Because students come from diverse undergraduate settings, I am often exasperated by the time it takes to establish vital political, cultural, economic, and/or historical contexts. With breathless pace and efficient prose, Dr. Corning brings students to a shared, 30,000-foot perspective that frees me to dive more deeply into specific theological issues and thereby improves the learning experience for my students."
