  • Triumph of Christianity How a Forbidden Religion Swept the World
    Triumph of Christianity How a Forbidden Religion Swept the World
    How did Christianity become the dominant religion in the West?

    In the early first century, a small group of peasants from the backwaters of the Roman Empire proclaimed that an executed enemy of the state was God's messiah. Less than four hundred years later it had become the official religion of Rome with some thirty million followers.

    It could so easily have been a forgotten sect of Judaism.

    Through meticulous research, Bart Ehrman, an expert on Christian history, texts and traditions, explores the way we think about one of the most important cultural transformations the world has ever seen, one that has shaped the art, music, literature, philosophy, ethics and economics of modern Western civilisation.

  • Unbelievers
    If Nietzsche announced God is dead, Alec Ryrie charts in this book the time of death, who killed him, and what kind of murder weapon was used.

    Why have Western societies that were once overwhelmingly Christian become so secular? In Unbelievers, the award-winning author of Protestants reminds us that atheism did not appear out of thin air. It has its own history.

    Unbelievers looks back to the middle ages when it seemed impossible not to subscribe to Christianity, through the crisis of the Reformation and to the powerful, challenging cultural currents of the centuries. The religious journey of the Western world was lived and steered not just by the celebrated thinkers of the day - the Machiavellis and Michel de Montaignes - but by men and women at every level of society, whose voices and feelings permeate this book in the form of diaries, letters and court records.

    Ryrie traces the roots of atheism born of anger and doubt born of anxiety, arguing that faith waxes and wanes with these emotional responses to the times, rather than any intellectual revolution. To understand how something as intuitive as belief is shaped over time, we must look to an emotional history - one with potent lessons for our still angry and anxious age.

  • Way of a Pilgrim
    Way of a Pilgrim
    Here, see my belongings- a bag of dry crusts on my back and the Holy Bible in my breast pocket; that's it'In 1884 a slim volume containing four short tales appeared in Russia. They told of a pilgrim, a lone wanderer, led by his quiet curiosity and a deep spiritual longing to undertake a lifelong journey across the land. The story of this gentle figure and his travels - through forests, fields and steppes, encountering priests and professors, nuns and convicts on the way - became a beloved spiritual guide around the world, immortalized in the pages of JD Salinger's Franny and Zooey as the 'small pea-green cloth-bound book' that Franny keeps close in her handbag. At its heart, it is a paean to peace, prayer, consolation and silent contemplation. Translated with an introduction and notes by Andrew Louth

  • Zealot Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth
    Zealot Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth
    #1 New York Times Bestseller..Two thousand years ago, an itinerant Jewish preacher and miracle worker walked across the Galilee, gathering followers to establish what he called the 'Kingdom of God'. The revolutionary movement he launched was so threatening to the established order that he was captured, tortured, and executed as a state criminal. Within decades after his shameful death, his followers would call him God...Balancing the Jesus of the Gospels against historical sources, Aslan describes a complex figure: a man of peace who exhorted his followers to arm themselves; an exorcist and faith healer who urged his disciples to keep his identity secret; and the seditious King of the Jews, whose promise of liberation from Rome went unfulfilled in his lifetime. Aslan explores why the early Church preferred to promulgate an image of Jesus as a peaceful spiritual teacher rather than a politically conscious revolutionary, and grapples with the riddle of how Jesus understood himself...This is a thought-provoking, elegantly written biography with the pulse of a fast-paced novel, and a singularly brilliant portrait of a man, a time and the birth of a religion...'riveting biography' - The New Yorker..'compulsively readable' - Publishers Weekly.
