Beginning with the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century, this second volume of The Story of Christianity continues narrative history to the present. Historian Justo Gonzalez brings to life the people, dramatic events, and shaping ideas of Protestantism, Catholicism, and Orthodoxy during this period, keynoting crucial theological developments while providing fresh understanding of the social, political, and economic forces that influenced the formation of the church. In particular, the author notes recurring themes of unrest, rebellion, and reformation. Gonzalez presents an illuminating record of the lives, impelling ideas, and achievements of such prominent figures as Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, and John Calvin--movers and shapers in the emerging Protestant church. His biographical insights, in conjunction with vivid historical accounts, reveal how individual lives mirror and clarify core theological concerns and developments. The interpretive overview of The Story of Christianity includes a thorough and timely analysis of the growth and maturation of Christianity, including events in Europe, the United States, and Latin America--the latter an area too often neglected in church histories, yet increasingly vital to an understanding of Christianity's historical development, present situation, and future, options. Gonzalez's richly textured study discusses the changes and directions of the church in the traditions of Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, and Eastern Christianity. The Story of Christianity covers such recent occurrences as the World Council of Churches, the Second Vatican Council, the movement toward Christian unity, and much more. It concludes with a thoughtful look at the major issues and debates involving Christians today.… (més)

Gonzalez's two-volume work on the history of Christianity is the best short work on the subject I have encountered so far. It is mostly free from bias, the topics are discrete, the books are mostly well-organized and logically put together. If you are looking for a work on the history of Christianity, and would like an overview and an introduction, I would recommend Gonzalez's two volume set. ( )

“This crisp retelling of Christian history from the days of the apostles to the eve of the Reformation is filled with insight.” —Mark A. Noll, Wheaton College

From Justo L. Gonzalez, author of the acclaimed three-volume History of Christian Thought comes the fully revised and updated second volume of The Story of Christianity. Gonzalez’s astute scholarship, lucid prose, and impassioned focus tell the narrative history of Christianity, beginning with the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century and leading all the way up to the present day.

This highly informative, narrative history covers the events, persons, external influences, and formative ideas of Christian history.

This second volume of González's history of the Christian Church takes the reader from the Reformation through the present day. While I enjoyed this continuation of his history, I felt like González got more bogged down in listing out historical events of the twentieth century and often lost sight of the theological and denominational changes that were such a focus of the first volume. Some of this is just the nature of writing a history of more modern times -- it's a lot harder to have the same perspective on events of the past few decades that you do of the church in the ancient world -- but I still missed some of the focus and energy of the first volume. Or maybe the Christian church was just more entertaining before the Reformation? Either way, this is still a worthwhile read and a helpful guide to the influence of the Christian church on our shared history and culture. ( )

In The Story of Christianity, Volume II, Justo L. González continues to chronicle Christianity, but where his first volume covers 1500 years in 490 pages, the second volume takes slightly longer to cover a shorter period of time – a testament to the diversity and complexity of the story of God’s people as it continues to unfold. Beginning with the corruption that plagued the leadership of the Catholic Church, the story quickly moves to the response of and contributions of the estimable Martin Luther. After discussing the contributions of Ulrich Zwingli and John Calvin in the Reformation and the rise of Protestantism, the story quickly moves to the contribution of the English to the grand mix of Christian denominations. Since González is presenting only the most influential highlights from this period, one assumes the content at this point could be considerably expanded to examine the effects on Christian theology and doctrine as the Catholic and Anglican Churches collide.

A significant development begins to take shape as The Story, once dominated by an intertwined church and state, develops into the history of an increasing distance between government and church. Those that sought deeper reform for the Church began postulating various theological positions which tested the resolve and liberality of world governments as they dealt with the increasing desire for self-expression. Of course, even as some began movements that improved the theology and spirituality of changing Christianity, others initiated movements that tended toward separation and isolation. Yet that same separation and isolation also led to an atmosphere ripe for a new religious zeal in The Great Awakening – individual pietism asserting against established rigid religiosity. The arch of Christianity has moved from reliance upon to independence from government, from well-established form to individual expression, and from sluggishness at the center to vitality at the periphery. As Christians, we should seek ways to embrace the ever shifting environment of Christianity while remaining true to the Word of God. ( )
