From Nero torching Rome and Martin Luther posting his Ninety-Five Theses to Billy Graham leading his modern evangelical crusades, the story of Christianity is filled with daring and devotion across the millennia. This illustrated book highlights a hundred of the most important events in the church's 2,000 years of history, offering an overview of the people, events, and ideas that have shaped Christianity. Here are the Gutenbergs' production of the first printed Bible, the Council of Trent, Jonathan Edwards's Great Awakening, the founding of the Salvation Army, the execution of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1963 march on Washington, D.C.
