Reviews

Primarily scholars from the UK and quite Euro-centric. (Ex. calling WWI "The Great War.") The only modern faith traditions considered are Anglicanism, Roman Catholicism, Orthodox Tradition, Quaker Thought, Pentecostalism, and Seventh-Day Adventism. Nothing on the Reformed Traditions (except in the lowlands Scottish section) and Methodism is simply cross referenced to the Wesleys. There are also entries on Christian thought in twenty countries/continents.

To quote the introduction: "So many ramifications of his influence, so many aspects of his effect on the world in the past twenty centuries," and the author tries to cover them all. Over 300 short entries on the ways Jesus has touched broad areas of history, thought and culture by scholars primary from the English speaking world (a majority from the UK.)

Coverage of topics is very spotty. The only modern faith traditions considered are Anglicanism, Roman Catholicism, Orthodox Tradition, Quaker Thought, Pentecostalism, and Seventh-Day Adventism. Nothing on the Reformed Traditions (except in the lowlands Scottish section and John Calvin's bio) and Methodism is simply cross referenced to the Wesleys. Art and literature have extensive entries. Most entries have very brief bibliographies.… (more)
