Christianity's Dangerous Idea Summary

Christianity's Dangerous Idea: The Protestant Revolution - A History From The Sixteenth Century To The Twenty-First by Alister McGrath, DPhil, DD

Protestantism is one of the world's largest and most dynamic religious movements, currently experiencing major growth and expansion in many parts of the world. This book sets out to explore the inner identity of this movement, and its implications for the religious future of humanity. The dangerous idea lying at the heart of Protestantism is that every individual has the right and responsibility to interpret the Bible. Christianity's Dangerous Idea is the first book that attempts to define this core element of Protestantism, and the religious and cultural dynamic that this 'dangerous idea' has unleashed. Its three major sections explore the history of the movement, engage with the distinctive features of Protestant belief and practice, and offer a provocative assessment of Protestantism's global future.

Christianity's Dangerous Idea Reviews

* 'An original and important book... the most readable introduction to the history, theology and present-day practices of Protestantism.' Publishers Weekly * 'Alister McGrath presents a daringly ambitious idea, nothing less than a systematic history of Protestantism and its variant forms - evangelicalism, Pentecostalism - from the Reformation through the modern-day rise of world Christianities. This highly readable survey is at once wonderfully wide-ranging, and impressively fairminded.' Philip Jenkins, author of The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity
