Churches, Revolutions and Empires: 1789-1914
1 in stock
1789 to 1914 was a time of momentous and often violent change religiously, socially, politically and economically in the western world. The revolutions in the churches and the powerful empires of the day were to have a profound effect upon society at large both then and in the years that followed.
In this detailed yet fascinating study, Ian Shaw gives context and understanding to this legacy which has been passed on from that era by providing an expert analysis of the period with a focus on the key leaders, influences and issues.
"... a sure and illuminating guide to these multiple processes of revolutionary change which began to redraw the contours of world Christianity."
- Brian Stanley, Professor of World Christianity, University of Edinburgh
"Clear, comprehensive, well-informed about the history of western churches, unusually perceptive about Christian developments elsewhere in the world, and throughout written in entirely accessible prose."
