This book is designed to lead students into the world of Christianity by way of primary literary sources. It contains the most notable and instructive primary sources from the entire sweep of Christian history.
  • I purchased this book for a class: Introduction to Christianity. We were assigned several readings from this book and other sources, which we then had to write a page about for each class.

    Style: 4/5

    The cover is a nice bronze and sepia color. The book itself is organized very well. Each writing has a short introduction and sources at the end, but in no way does it feel cluttered.

    Entertainment: 3/5

    If you're a history buff, this book will obviously be more fun for you. For me however, It was a rather boring read. The book is extensive, and I wouldn't say that every writing is totally necessary.

    Usefulness: 5/5

    Every single writing is a primary source. Not only that, but biased writings are often directly followed by a counter-writing that is also a primary source! For those who need good citations for a paper, or those just interested in the evolution of Christianity, (hehe) this is the book for you.

  • Just another textbook. Some interesting, some boring. I think it's a good idea to test all these readings against the Bible, just to make sure I don't get confused by someone's jargon. :)

  • The book was posted as in good condition but it has coffee stains and many pages highlighted with different colors.

  • I bought the book and the description said that there was slight wear and small spine bending. Then when i got it it was all water damaged which they failed to put in the description. Not happy with this withheld information

  • This book includes many important primary sources of Christianity to convey a sense of the history and growth of Christianity. He breaks the history up into Biblical foundations (Old and New Testament), ancient Christianity, Medieval times, reformation, early modern Christianity, and modern Christianity. Within each era the division of the writings into Events, Institution, Teaching, Ethics, and Relations may be a bit artificial (for example is the beginning of Monasticism more about events, institution, or teaching?), but does help organize the readings. Some of the dates on the sources are not clearly given, but generally this is not a problem as the general era is clear.
    Van Voorst should be congratulated for including womens' perspective throughout the history, and at least some writings from the Eastern Orthodox Christianity, which often seems neglected in this country. He often does a great job of pairing primary sources, for example pairing Anselm's scholastic argument on proving the existence of God with Thomas Aquinas Summa Theologiae. Everyone will probably find missing some of their sources (like Dante), but there is a chance of discovering new authors shaping Christianity (like Hildegard of Bingen). Whoever reads these texts will find some new understanding of how Christianity has grappled with some of the same historic issues of faith and works, but has also dealings with new topics such as bioengineering.

  • I enjoy the quickness
