Given the diversity and complexity of developments in the twentieth century, a history of the Christian Church in the modern period is in some ways the most challenging volume of all to write. But Jeremy Morris succeeds in presenting a coherent account of the Church. He emphasises the changing relationship of Western churches to the many forms of Christianity in other parts of the world, while also departing from the Eurocentric worldview of previous histories. His volume offers three major perspectives. The first is political, in which the history of the modern Church is assessed through a prism of international conflicts and international relations. The second perspective is regional, in which coverage is given not only to Europe and the Americas, but to Christianity in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Pacific Rim and Australasia. The author's third major perspective is institutional, in which he discusses particular Christian traditions and their relationships with each other, with other faiths and with wider cultures. An epilogue evaluates the future and prospects for Christianity in the new millennium.

'This promises to be an impressive and valuable series.'
– Stewart J. Brown, FRSE, Professor of Ecclesiastical History, University of Edinburgh

'A series such as this is hugely welcome. Its emphasis on the history of ideas, and on the global – not just European – experience of Christianity and its manifestations of church, will be valued by students, scholars and general readers alike. The I.B.Tauris History of the Christian Church brings ecclesiastical history into a new era, for a new generation.'
– Diarmaid MacCulloch, Professor of the History of the Church, University of Oxford

'The new I.B.Tauris History of the Christian Church series has quickly established an enviable reputation for impressive scholarship.'
– Journal of Ecclesiastical History
