This book traces the history of theology and the Church from its ancient beginnings to its relevance in the world today.


"An open and engaging survey of the theology of church in its biblical roots, its historical development, and its setting in today's complex world. Building on the work of leading historians, sociologists, and theologians, Sanks has produced a coherent and lively synthesis. As an overview of the church in its many aspects, both human and divine, this work has few rivals. Veterans as well as beginners will profit from these pages."  —Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J.
