Christianity - Major World Religions
1 May 2018
Today Christianity is considered the world's largest religious faith, with around 2.2 billion followers. But Christianity is by no means a monolithic faith. Instead Christians are divided into a variety of denominations and sects--Roman or orthodox, Catholic or Protestant, Evangelical or Pentecostal, to name a few examples. All Christian sects share a belief in the divinity of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe came to Earth to redeem humanity. This book provides the history of Christianity, and explains how the current divisions in the faith occurred. It also provides information about the beliefs shared by most Christians, details the major sects, and explores festivals and holy days.
