Provides an introduction to various Christian denominations, including Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran, and Presbyterian, offering information on beliefs, history, practices, and the scriptures. The volumes in the new series Religions of the World surveys religions that have had a major impact on the history of the world and that continue to play a role in relationships between nations and ethnic groups. All aspects, including roots and founding, primary beliefs and cultural activities, the way the faiths are viewed by the rest of the world, and the experience of growing up as a member of the religion, are be examined. As the world's largest faith, Christianity has long had a tremendous amount of influence on international history and politics. Despite being split into three branches: Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant, as well as almost innumerable denominations, Christianity has played a major role in directing the course of world affairs, mainly because it is often the dominant faith in wealthy nations.
