Comments Introduction to World Christian History

  • James

    My grad school prided itself on its global Christian impact; yet the church history I learned there was a largely Western story. Certainly there was an acknowledgement  that Christendom's origins weren't in the West, and the church in Africa and Asia; yet more time and energy was spent unearthing the European story as the dominant narrative running through Christian history. This made a certain amount of sense. It was a school in the West and the West has pride of place in medieval and modern C [...]

    There is a tendency to speak of Christianity as being a "Western" religion, by which most people think of Christianity as a European religion. The fact is, Christianity, like Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and a number of other major religions, is in fact an Asian-born religion. Its roots are in Asia and from there it spread south, east, west, and yes, north in the two millennia since its birth in the first century of the common era. Telling the story of Christianity is not easy fo [...]

    I’m often asked for history books to recommend and find it hard to navigate the tension between readability and thoroughness/accuracy. Cooper’s Book is really well organized, contains interesting tidbits of stories as well as laying out the big picture efficiently enough that an educated non-historian can read it. This will be my new go-to book.

    Introduction to World Christian History is, for me, a fascinating book. Derek Cooper is the first author I have read who approaches this subject in the way he does, which is different than other books I have read on Church History.Church History often approaches the subject from the author's view of which "Church" was the correct expression of Christianity. Cooper does not make such judgments in this book. He touches on differences of belief, but does not explore such differences in depth. Allow [...]

    Two clear goals of the book: 1) to introduce the reader to the history of Christianity all around the globe; 2) to disabuse the reader of notions that Christianity's strength is always Western. As to the first, this IS a great introduction to Christianity, the author guiding the reader continent by continent. I loved learning about the progress and state of Christianity in places like Ethiopia, Mexico, India, Korea, Japan, South Africa, Oceania, Egypt, Brazil, Cuba, Kazakhstan, etc. As to the se [...]

    Derek Cooper, Introduction to World Christian History (Downers Grove, IL: IVP Academic, 2016).Derek Cooper begins his Introduction to World Christian History with a thought-provoking quote:In just over 100 years, the map of world Christianity has changed almost out of recognition. In 1900, it is estimated that 70 percent of all Christians were to be found in Europe whereas by 2025 Africa and Latin America will be vying with one another to claim the most Christians, having about a quarter each of [...]


  • Jimmy Reagan

    This book serves as a short introduction to Christian history and actually covers that territory in 250 pages. It’s other unique feature is the extent it goes to prove that Christianity has a global rather than a western history.The volume was successful in proving what we often forget–Christianity has had peak periods all over the world. I personally wasn’t aware how some areas, like, for example, the Far East, had periods of flourishing in Christianity. The history is presented in broad [...]
