On its release, the seven volume A People’s History of Christianity was lauded for its commitment to raising awareness of the ways in which ordinary Christians have lived throughout more than twenty centuries of Christian History. Now, the essential material from that important project is available for classroom use.
This volume contains careful selections and abridgements of the original content organized to fit ideally into a course in Christian history. It provides a valuable overview on such topics as birth and death, baptism rites, food, power, heresy, and more. Students are both informed and inspired by seeing the importance of ordinary Christians in shaping Christianity across time.

“This series of books, issuing from editors in whom I have great confidence, ‘turns history upside down’ and reveals what times and events were like for Christians—and sometimes their rivals and enemies. . . . These stories may come up from the basement of church history, but news about their existence deserves to be shouted from the housetops!”
Martin E. Marty
University of Chicago Divinity School
“The people of God—the body of Christ, the church!—are finally having their story told. Highly recommended.”
