4. Church and biblical Christianity Some of the historical divisions within Christianity, including that between the Western Catholic Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and (later) between the Roman Catholic Church and various Protestant Churches, have already been introduced. Within each of them there are many further sub-divisions—schisms within schisms. Within Protestantism, for example, there are innumerable different denominations, and even within a single church like the Roman Catholic Church there are many semi-autonomous institutions—like monasteries, voluntary organizations, and different religious orders.

1. Calvinism: what’s in a name? Wall Street Journal from 23 October 2015 published an article on the Calvinist beliefs of the novelist, Marilynne Robinson. A piece in the 3 January 2014 New York Times hailed a ‘Calvinist Revival’ within US evangelicalism, and Direction , a Mennonite journal, printed an astonishing article in its Fall 2013 issue on, ‘The Rise of New Calvinism among Canadian Mennonite Brethren’ (Mennonites are traditionally strongly anti-Calvinistic). A Guardian article from 27 May 2009 bears the title, ‘Chinese Calvinism Flourishes’. In the same month in 2009, Time

2. Beliefs, rituals, and narratives Having considered how the figure of Jesus was interpreted, we can take the story further by looking at how depictions of him developed, and how they fit into the broader scheme of Christian rituals and symbols. Later chapters explain how the elements of Christianity discussed here were developed in different branches of Christianity. In Eastern Christianity, for example, less emphasis is placed on sin than in Western churches, and in some forms of Christianity the Holy Spirit has a much more central place than others. In this chapter, however, we can turn down the volume

3. The spread of Christianity From its fragile origins within a small country under imperial occupation, Christianity had, by the 19th century, grown to become the world’s largest religion. Although Christians have explained this success in terms of God’s action, few would deny that alliances with worldly power were also involved. This chapter charts Christianity’s growth and spread, and explains how a fringe movement turned into a ‘world religion’.

1. Jesus: the God-man The figure of Jesus Christ is both a focus of unity for Christianity and a cause of division. Whatever else they might disagree about, Christians are united in their belief that Jesus Christ has unique significance. Yet they differ over how to explain it. Despite strenuous attempts in all ages to contain Jesus within a single interpretative framework, he repeatedly breaks free.
