About-

This timeline comprises one thousand significant dates for global Christianity. It includes events across all inhabited continents (and also in Antarctica and outer space), emphasizing those occurring in the non-Western world. The detailed annotations on each date are intended as provocative “ignition points” to spark historical curiosity, functioning as “launchpads” into further exploration in global Christianity. For example:

•739: What did the finding of the Rotas-Sator palindrome on the walls of an eighth-century Sudanese cave dwelling indicate?

•1346: Who were the mysterious Christians in the Javanese Royal Court of Majapahit?

•1969: Why was the “secret communion” on the Moon hushed up by NASA?

•1992: Why was Paraguay the only Latin American country to include an indigenous language as a national language?

Since previous histories of Christianity usually have a European or North American perspective, students will find this book useful for its global coverage. It can be used in three ways. Firstly, it can be used chronologically as a continuous global timeline. It can also be used as a sampling of Christianity in each country, or as an index of significant figures in the history of global Christianity. Each section is cross-referenced to the timeline, making it a valuable resource for historical study.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Brett Knowles is a top-flight scholar and A Timeline of Global Christianity is a first-class quality contribution. Students, interested laypeople, and historical scholars alike will find this comprehensive, concise, and highly informative resource so helpful in displaying the most significant people, events, and theological issues across the globe. This Timeline will be an indispensable tool for situating and contextualizing the social movements, historical landmark decisions, and most notable figures in the story of Christian faith. This should be a required first-purchase for all students in theological schools in the English-speaking world.”

—Mark A. Lamport, professor and editor, Grand Rapids, Michigan



“This chronology is genuinely global, reinforcing one of the most dramatic and welcomed developments in the historiography over the past two decades: the recovery of non-Western Christian history. I can hardly imagine a timeline that could be more comprehensive in how it treats that history around the world and across the span of two millennia. I am confident Brett’s work will prove to be of enduring service to students and their teachers, as well as the many others interested in navigating the Christian past. This work is a timely gift to us all.”

—Tim Cooper, University of Otago, New Zealand
