Sidebars, photos, illustrations, and maps enhance the text. Now available in paper. Originally titled God's Peoples. Reviews of the hardcover edition: "The book represents a good combination of evangelical Christian faith and historical scholarship. It should enable evangelicals (especially theological students) to see their place in the total story of the Christian movement and to have a greater understanding of non-evangelical Christians."--James A. Cogswell, Missiology "Students have found the book to be interesting reading, enticing those for whom history formerly had little appeal...Our praise and thanks for a well-crafted piece of work."--Luke L. Keefer Jr., Ashland Theological Journal "The book ...is quite reliable. It is recommended for class textbook use and as introductory reading for people who want to know more about the history of the peoples who compose the Christian church." --Daniel Augsburger, Andrews University Seminary Studies
